Two month closure expected for parts of Northside Drive, Yucca Avenue

Posted June 2, 2017

Infrastructure improvements will affect areas near I-35, Northside Drive and Yucca Avenue.
Infrastructure improvements will affect areas near I-35, Northside Drive and Yucca Avenue.

Beginning June 5, the area 400 feet west of I-35 on Northside Drive and 400 feet east of I-35 on Yucca Avenue will be closed while crews make infrastructure improvements to the interstate. These roadways are expected to remain closed until July 31, 2017.

Crews will remove existing pavement, excavate the roadway sub-grade, remove and replace storm drains, construct a new asphalt roadway with pavement markings, add concrete curbs and sidewalks, and install new traffic signals.

Phased closures will help minimize the impact to the Oakhurst neighborhood and nearby Calvary Church School, and will provide a safer environment for workers and vehicle traffic.

Once construction begins, all traffic signals will be turned off and traffic will free-flow. On-ramp traffic will be detoured to Pharr Street and NE 28th Street.

To avoid delays, motorists should seek alternate routes and observe traffic signage. Electronic message boards will be in place to notify motorists about the closures.
