On Tuesday, June 14, 2016, West Avenue (STH 35), between Jackson Street and South Avenue, will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic, from approximately 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. (Noon). The closure is necessary for the removal of Ash Trees from the public boulevards on this segment of highway.
A detour will be posted, using Jackson Street (Highway 33) and South Avenue (Highways 14/61). All side streets within the closure area will only remain open for east-west traffic across West Avenue.
I would urge motorists to be aware of changing traffic patterns. It is anticipated that West Avenue will be re-opened fully no later 12:00 P.M., the same day.
