Daytime Closure Scheduled for Ford Avenue

Drivers should use Joseph Drive and McDonald Way

Ford Avenue will be closed to traffic between Dunlap Street and North Stine Road during daytime hours on Thursday, August 27. The closure is needed to place concrete for the new eastbound bridge deck.

The concrete pour is expected to begin at 3 a.m. and to be completed by 12 p.m. (noon). Concrete was placed for the westbound bridge deck last week.

Residents can detour around the work zone by using Joseph Drive/McDonald Way.

Construction schedules may be changed without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
