Nighttime Westside Parkway Ramp Closures Planned

Traffic may be impacted by road work on Thursday, Friday

The schedule has been updated for the nighttime closures on the eastbound Westside Parkway off-ramp to Truxtun Avenue. The work will now be performed on Thursday, December 26 and Friday, December 27, weather permitting. The closure is expected to be in place between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., each night.

Eastbound motorists will need to exit the Westside Parkway at Mohawk Street to connect with Truxtun Avenue. The westbound on-ramp will remain open, but will be operating with only one lane. Truxtun Avenue will remain open to traffic in both directions.

Work may be rescheduled without notice due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving in the vicinity of this work. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
