On Monday, June 13, 2016, a segment of Highway 16 (La Crosse Street, from West Avenue to 7th Street; and 7th Street, from La Crosse Street to Cass Street) in the City of La Crosse will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic. The closure is necessary for sewer and storm utility work at the intersections of 10th & La Crosse and 12th & La Crosse.
The posted detour route will be West Avenue (Highway 24) and Cass Street. However, local access will be maintained via side streets within the closed area. All businesses will remain open throughout construction and will be accessible.
I would urge motorists to be aware of the posted detour and changing traffic patterns. It is anticipated that Highway 16 (La Crosse Street) will be re-opened fully no later than the evening of the following Friday, June 17, 2016.
