15th Street: Paving operations will begin Monday. Driveway accesses to business parking areas on 15th Street are closed; valley gutters and drive pads have been placed.

During the closure, the contractor will be placing blue “business access” signs to provide motorists direction to the alternate driveway.

Expect single lane closure/flagging operations between Oakwood South and Central Avenue to allow reconstruction of the road through Saturday, Oct. 12.

Expect heavy truck traffic and congestion with lane closures and flagging operations. Motorists should seek alternate routes and allow additional time to get to their destination.
