Weekend Closures Planned on 24th Street

Detour information for both Saturday and Sunday

The contractor for the 24th Street Improvement Project plans to close the 24th Street/Eye Street intersection at 2 a.m. Saturday, February 1, for drainage work. This closure is expected to be in place until 7 p.m. Saturday. Westbound motorists will be detoured north at Chester Avenue, west on 28th Street, then south on H Street to reconnect with 24th Street. Motorists traveling north or south on Eye Street will need to use H Street or Chester Avenue to cross 24th Street.

On Sunday, February 2, the contractor will need to close the inside travel lane on 24th Street from 5 a.m. through 7 p.m. to complete this drainage work. One lane will remain open to traffic on 24th Street, but north-south traffic will need to use H Street or Chester Avenue to cross 24th Street.

No impacts are anticipated for eastbound traffic on 23rd Street.

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