Grant Avenue to close to one-way southbound only between Sunshine and Ildereen beginning Sept. 26


Grant Avenue will close to one-way southbound traffic only between Sunshine and Ildereen streets beginning Monday, Sept. 26 for construction related to the Grant Avenue Parkway corridor improvement project. The roadway is expected to remain one-way for approximately three months (weather and contractor scheduling dependent).    

Northbound traffic is advised to follow the posted detour via Sunshine Street, Campbell Avenue and Ildereen Street. 

“We originally didn’t expect to make the shift to one-way traffic in this section of the Parkway until later this year,” explains Project Manager Leree Reese. “But many pre-construction arrangements with utilities and easement acquisition have lined up to allow construction to move forward sooner. We’re hopeful to complete a major portion of this section by the end of the year.”
