Austin Bluff Parkway Traffic Advisory Night Work Scheduled
Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Traffic ShiftAustin Bluffs Parkway, Nevada Ave. to Union Blvd.

Starting Sunday, July 7, through Wednesday, July 10, from 8 p.m. – 6 a.m., night work will occur on Austin Bluffs Parkway between Nevada Avenue and Union Blvd. in preparation for a westbound traffic switch. Both westbound and eastbound traffic will be reduced from two lanes to one. Two lanes will be open to traffic, both westbound and eastbound, by 6 a.m. each morning.

This work is being done to accommodate median work. Median work will include removal of the existing median, placement of asphalt and pavement markings to establish a traffic shift along a new westbound lane alignment. The new alignment will shift the westbound lanes to the newly paved median so work can continue on the north side of Austin Bluffs.

Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes during this planned night work.  Posted signage, cones and flaggers will be present to help motorists safely navigate the area.
