The daytime westbound outside travel lane on Truxtun Avenue, between Oak Street and Myrtle Street, will continue to remain closed for at least the next two weeks.

The daytime lane closures are expected to be in place Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.  The westbound right-turn lane to northbound Oak Street will also be closed Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. during this time period.

Crews will also be working on the fiber optic lines along westbound Truxtun Avenue, between Oak Street and State Route 99, this weekend. This work will require intermittent lane closures of the outside westbound travel lane from Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m. through 12 a.m. Monday, May 20.

Motorists traveling through this area during these days and times should anticipate delays due to construction and select an alternate route or allow extra time to reach their destinations. 

Please note: construction work may be postponed and rescheduled due to inclement weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances without notice. Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving through the construction zone. 

The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public. For project information, please visit their website at
