Approved Closure - Kirby Avenue and South Oak Street Sidewalk and Street Lanes
Nov 08, 2023 | 2:23 pm
Approved Traffic Closure - Kirby & Oak for Storm Sewer Maintenance from 11-13-2023 to 11-24-2023
Sidewalk and street closures for storm sewer maintenance will necessitate route adjustments around the Physical Plant Service Building (1501 S. Oak Street) beginning Monday, November 13. The work will occur in two phases, with each portion expected to last a week.
KIRBY AVENUE LANE CLOSURE (November 13 to November 17)
The right westbound lane of Kirby Avenue will be closed starting next Monday. Vehicles traveling across S. Oak Street in that direction will need to merge before reaching the Neil Street viaduct.
OAK STREET SIDEWALK AND LANE CLOSURE (November 20 to November 24)
The sidewalk west of S. Oak Street near Kirby Avenue will be closed on Monday, November 20, requiring individuals to use a temporary crosswalk setup for facility access when arriving from the south. The work will reroute F&S staff and visitors to use the sidewalk section on the east side of S. Oak Street exclusively during this period. The straight-ahead/right-turn lane will also be closed, reducing the street to one southbound lane at Kirby Avenue. Expect longer wait times and the potential for occasional vehicle backups at the traffic signal.
