Nighttime Closures Planned on California Avenue

Closures expected to start Sept. 14

Nighttime road closures have been scheduled for California Avenue between Marella Way and Easton Drive on Monday, September 14 and Tuesday, September 15. The closures will affect both directions of travel and are expected to be in place between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., each night.  

The closures are needed for final falsework grading on the future eastbound Centennial Corridor bridge. Motorists can use Stockdale Highway or Truxtun Avenue to detour around the California Avenue construction zone while work is underway. 

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.
