Weather permitting, beginning on Thursday, July 30, Melrose Avenue will be reduced to one lane of westbound traffic near its intersection with the eastern entrance to West High School. This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate pavement repair in the area. It is anticipated normal traffic will resume by Monday, August 3.

Motorists are to take note of this construction and to allow extra travel time as delays may be possible. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
