Westside Parkway, Truxtun Avenue and Mohawk Street to be impacted

Nighttime lane closures will be needed on the Westside Parkway, Truxtun Avenue, and Mohawk Street from Monday, May 11 through Wednesday, May 13. These closures are needed for restriping activities. The bike path from the railroad bridge to Commercial Way will also be restriped during this time period.

On Monday night, crews will be working on westbound Westside Parkway between Truxtun Avenue and Coffee Road and motorists should anticipate alternating lane closures of the two inside lanes. The closures are expected to be in place between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, crews will need alternating and intermittent closures as they restripe the two eastbound lanes on the Westside Parkway between Coffee Road and Truxtun Avenue, the on- and off-ramps at Truxtun Avenue and Mohawk Street, and the two inside lanes on eastbound and westbound Truxtun Avenue. Closures are expected to be in place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on both days.

The outside lanes on northbound and southbound Mohawk Street will also need to be closed for restriping. Mohawk Street closures may be in place between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Work may be rescheduled without notice due to 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.
