Truck traffic detoured on Cty Rd 7 and southbound Hwy 61 vehicular traffic detoured on County 7 to 8th Ave W are expected to be routed back to Hwy 61 starting on Friday, September 17. Once the detours are lifted, the temporary signal at 5th Ave W and Cty Rd 7 will remain in red flashing 4-way stop mode until the signal is removed early next week, as a transition back to normal operation of this intersection.
Finishing work will continue with no traffic impacts. Work remaining includes installing sidewalk and pedestrian ramps, final grading and sodding, signing and striping, bench and bike rack installation, and planting of trees and shrubs.
