A detour route will be set up around the work zone via Texas Avenue, Heiskell Avenue, Johnston Street, Tennessee Avenue, and Schofield Street. While this section of Western Avenue will be closed to through traffic, access will be maintained to area businesses and driveways in the work zone. Emergency vehicles will also have access. Signage and traffic control devices will be placed around the entire construction zone to direct motorists to the detour route. This road closure will be in effect continuously until the completion date.

Information about this project and road closure will also be posted on the KUB website at www.kub.org and the KUB Facebook page. Customers may also call the KUB construction project hotline at 558-2330 to leave a message that will be responded to by a KUB representative by the end of the next business day.
