Beginning on Monday, July 1, 2013, traffic on Western Avenue, south of Crossing Place, will be shifted from the northbound lanes to the new pavement on the southbound lanes.

This adjustment will allow the contractor to begin work on the east side of Western Avenue south of Crossing Place. During construction, one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on Western Avenue, but traffic delays are to be expected.

In addition, on Monday morning July 1, 2013, Blackhawk Street will be closed between C Avenue and D Avenue.

BNSF will be rebuilding a railroad crossing. The work is anticipated to be finished by Thursday evening July 4, 2013.

Motorists are urged to use caution and reduced speeds while traveling through the construction zone.

Finally, beginning Monday, July 1, 2013, concrete repairs will begin on Tenth Street and 11th Street from Minnesota Avenue to Grange Avenue. Lanes will be closed for the repairs but traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times.

Traffic delays are to be expected. Motorists are urged to use caution and reduced speeds while traveling in the construction areas and may wish to consider alternate routes.

Work is expected to be complete in one to two weeks.
