10/5/2017 - Temporary Road Closure October 5th - Ward Avenue

On Thursday, October 5, 2017, beginning at 7 A.M., Ward Avenue will be temporarily closed to traffic at the BNSF mainline track, between 28th and 29th Streets.  The closure is necessary for maintenance work by BNSF on the track and crossing materials.

A detour will be posted for traffic to use the State Road (Highway 33) bridge, via Losey Boulevard and 32nd Street.

I would urge motorists to be aware of the posted detour and changing traffic patterns.  Depending on weather conditions, it is anticipated that Ward Avenue will be re-opened fully by 5 P.M. the following day, Friday, October 6, 2017.
