South Downs closure begins June 22

South Downs closure begins June 22The City Public Works Department issued a notice that Downs Street will be closed to through-traffic between Ridgecrest Boulevard and Upjohn Avenue beginning Monday, June 22, and continuing through the end of August. Construction crews are scheduled to complete street repairs on that section of roadway. Traffic in and out of that zone will be allowed, but all other travelers will be rerouted during construction. “The traffic signal at Ridgecrest Boulevard and Downs Street will be placed on flashing red and should be treated as a four-way stop from all directions,” said Bard Lower, public works director. “Please drive responsibly along the detour route and be cautious at the intersections. Your patience during the period of construction is greatly appreciated.” — Photo by Laura Austin
