Stine Road Closures at Stockdale Highway

Long-term closure to remain in effect until late 2022

The contractor for the Centennial Corridor Mainline plans to close Stine Road on the south side of Stockdale Highway on Monday, January 27. This is a long-term closure and is expected to remain in effect through the duration of the project in late 2022. Stine Road will be accessible from Belle Terrace and residents can use adjacent streets to access the neighborhood from Stockdale Highway. This closure was rescheduled from an earlier date and is needed for bridge construction.

Daytime closures are scheduled for Stine Road on the north side of Stockdale Highway on Wednesday, January 29 and Tuesday, February 4. These closures will affect southbound traffic between Ford Avenue and Stockdale Highway.  Southbound motorists will be detoured west on Ford Avenue to North McDonald Way to access Stockdale Highway. The northbound lane on Stine Road is expected to remain open while the contractor constructs piles for the new bridge.

No impacts are anticipated for east-west traffic on Stockdale Highway at this time.

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.
