Closures Planned on Stockdale Hwy, Ford Avenue

Ford Ave closure to last three weeks

Utility potholing will require lane closures on Stockdale Highway Monday, April 20 through Thursday, April 23. This work will require the closure of the two outside eastbound lanes and the outside westbound lane on Stockdale Highway between Wible Road and Real Road. The closures are expected to be in place between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., each day.

Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes or allow extra time to reach their destinations if they must travel through this area while work is underway.

Ford Avenue, between N. Stine Road and Dunlap Street, will be closed for three weeks beginning Monday, April 20. This will be an around-the-clock closure and is needed to erect falsework for a new bridge structure. Residents can detour around the work area by using Joseph Drive.

This schedule may be changed without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and pay attention to construction and detour signage while driving through the area. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
