For Immediate Release

Jefferson Avenue Closure

Jefferson Avenue south of Montclair Street will be closed beginning on Monday, April 30, 2012 for the installation of a storm water box across Jefferson Avenue. Motorists are advised to use the marked detour via Montclair Street, Kimbrough Avenue, and Walnut Lawn Street for southbound travel and Walnut Lawn Street, Campbell Avenue, and Battlefield Road for northbound travel. The sidewalk in this area will also be closed along Jefferson Avenue during the construction. Jefferson Avenue should be reopened to traffic by May 27, 2012, weather dependent.

The purpose of this project is to provide additional capacity for storm flows under Jefferson Avenue and reduce flooding inundation of the road. This project is funded primarily through the 2004 Level Property Tax.
