Weekend Closure Planned for Oak Street Between 21st & 24th

Paving operations will begin Friday, Feb. 7

The contractor for the 24th Street Improvement Project will begin paving operations at the Oak Street/24th Street intersection this weekend. The work will require an around-the-clock closure on Oak Street between 21st Street and 24th Street and on the north side of 24th Street from 9 p.m. Friday, February 7, through 5 a.m. Monday, February 10.

One lane in each direction will remain open through the intersection for east-west traffic on 24th Street, but no right- or left-turn movements will be allowed at this intersection while work is underway. Oak Street will be closed on the north side of 21st Street, but the remainder of the Oak Street/21st Street intersection will remain open.

Traffic will be detoured around the work via Truxtun Avenue and F Street. Detour signage will be in place.

Additional around-the-clock closures will be needed at this intersection February 14-17 to complete the intersection paving and striping.

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.
