Century Avenue Closure Update

The contractors will again be transitioning the traffic control to the north and into the next phases of the Century Avenue construction. They will be installing additional traffic control and implementing additional street closures starting on Wednesday morning, June 28, 2017. The additional traffic control will close Century Avenue from Second Street to Woodland Drive to through traffic. Sixth Street and Eighth Street will be open for cross-traffic. 

The recommended local travel routes for these phases of the project will be as follows: Vehicles traveling east, or to the schools, can take Woodland Drive - Simon Crestway – South Street – Main Street; and vehicles traveling west, and to or from the downtown businesses can use Woodland Drive - Holiday Drive – Main Street or Holiday Drive – Klein Drive. 

Access to businesses on the west side of Century Avenue throughout this phase of the construction will be via Klein Drive.

Access to businesses on the east side of Century Avenue between Second Street and Fourth Street may be changing periodically to accommodate the underground utility upgrades. Access will be from either of two routes (depending on the progress); South access will be Holiday Drive - Klein Drive – Fourth Street - Century Avenue to access the southern driveways and north access will be Main Street - Century Avenue to access the northern driveways. Additional signage will be installed to assist drivers and additional staff will be available to answer questions. 

Beginning Wednesday, and until further notice, access to businesses on the east side of Century Avenue will continue to use the north entrance; Main Street – Century Avenue.

The Regional Detour is still in place; The regional detour will connect CTH Q to STH 113 using CTH K – CTH M – STH 113.
