Keep up-to-date on weekly closures and detour routes during peak construction season.

During peak construction season—typically April through October—we send out weekly road and traffic reports each Friday to help members of our community plan the quickest, safest and most reliable routes to their destinations. The weekly report is intended to provide information about various projects within City limits that impact the roadways.



The map below shows lane and road closures on arterials and collectors and full closures on residential streets.
