Watch for delays on Louise Avenue this week

Posted: Updated:

Some lanes will be closed on Louise Avenue starting Tuesday which might cause some big backups at a very busy part of town.

Work started on Friday on Louise Avenue, between 34th Street and 41st Street. Then crews took a break through the weekend and the Veterans Day Holiday. Tuesday it all starts back up. The outside southbound lane on Louise Avenue will be closed between 34th Street and 41st Street, but traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times. Work is expected to be completed within 4 days. Being that the intersection of 41st and Louise is the busiest intersection in the state you might want to think about avoiding this area.

This concrete repair stems from a water main break earlier this year. Back in march you might remember one night there were several water main breaks all over town. One of them was on this stretch of Louise Avenue. A temporary fix was put in place back in September but now a permanent fix needs to be done.

Starting at 8:15 Wednesday morning crews will be working on a sanitary sewer manhole at the intersection of West Burnside Street and North Western Avenue. The westbound traffic lane on Burnside Street will be closed at the intersection with traffic being shifted into the turn lane. Right-hand turns onto northbound Western Avenue will be restricted and traffic instead will be directed to Sigler Avenue. All through traffic on Western Avenue will be maintained. This work should be done on Saturday but you will need to slow down in this area.

Starting today crews will be working at the intersection of Ninth Street and Western Avenue. The intersection at Ninth Street along the east side of Western Avenue will be closed. Detour signs will be placed to direct traffic around the closure. No parking will be allowed along Western Avenue within the vicinity of the construction zone. Traffic lanes along Western Avenue will be adjusted to maintain traffic in both directions. This work should be done on Friday. You will need to slow down in this area.
