On Monday, March 27, 2017, a section of westbound 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 private sewer and water utility work near the intersection of 7th & La Crosse.
A posted detour route will be for through traffic to use West Avenue (Highway 35), to Jackson Street (Highway 33), to 4th Street (Highway 14/61). However, local access will be maintained via side streets within the closed area. All businesses will remain open and accessible throughout construction.
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 Thursday, March 30, 2017.
