Platte Ave. Lane Closure Changes

Be alert for changes to the lane closures on Platte Ave. from Union Blvd. to Hancock Ave.  Starting at 6 a.m. on Wednesday Oct. 19, 2011, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction (eastbound and westbound) to allow for preparation and paving of the eastbound lanes and south side streets.                        

The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of November 2011.  All scheduling is weather dependant.  Motorists should pay attention to message boards in the area that will warn of traffic changes, and plan alternate routes accordingly.
