Weather permitting, beginning on Thursday, May 9, 2019, Taft Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Lower West Branch Road and Herbert Hoover Highway. This closure will facilitate roadway pavement repairs. It is anticipated that Taft Avenue will re-open to normal traffic on Friday, May 10, 2019.

Motorists should take note of this construction work and allow extra travel time or seek an alternate route during this period. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling in all construction areas.
