7th Ave: Westbound Traffic Detour - 31st St. to 26th St.
Starting Monday, May 22, 2017, tentatively, the westbound lanes of 7th Avenue will be closed to traffic from 31st Street to 26th Street. A detour will be set-up directing westbound traffic onto 8th Avenue. To allow for continuous left-turning movements onto 8th Avenue from 31st Street, 31st Street will be closed to ALL TRAFFIC just north of 8th Avenue. To access properties along 31st Street between 8th Avenue and 10th Avenue, use 10th Avenue. All business access will be from 8th Avenue.
Eastbound traffic on 7th Avenue will not be able to turn left onto 26th Street AND southbound traffic on 26th Street will not be able to turn left onto 7th Avenue.
During peak hours there will be congestion, using other routes is highly recommended.
This closure is required to allow for the paving of the west side of the center island of the roundabout. The 7th Avenue closure of westbound traffic is anticipated to last one week, weather permitting.
