Rain delays M Street work until Tuesday

Mike Conway

Post Date:04/07/2017

The Thursday night/early Friday morning rain prevented crews from finishing the work on the traffic control devices on M Street. The work will be continued early Tuesday morning resulting in a complete road closure of M Street at the bridge from midnight to 5 a.m..

However, crews have been able to narrow the lanes from four to two lanes on M Street. One lane in each direction will be open during the project.

Please drive carefully during the 'Big Fix' on the M Street bridge.

Below is the notice from the Engineering Department about the upcoming road closure.

Please direct any questions about the project to the numbers listed below.
