Closure of Western Half of Pennsylvania Ave. & Northwest Arterial Intersection Starts June 6
As announced earlier this week, the western half of the Pennsylvania Ave. and Northwest Arterial intersection will be closed beginning at 6 a.m. on Monday, June 6. This closure is expected to last approximately two weeks.
- Northwest Arterial southbound traffic through the intersection will be maintained but there will be no righthand turns onto westbound Pennsylvania Ave. and the left turn lane onto eastbound Pennsylvania will be closed.
- A posted detour will reroute Pennsylvania Ave. eastbound traffic west of the arterial to Heacock Rd. to Asbury Rd. to John F Kennedy Rd. Westbound traffic on Pennsylvania Ave. east of the arterial will be detoured north on the Northwest Arterial to Asbury Rd. to Radford Rd.
- There will be no left turns from Pennsylvania Ave. onto the Northwest Arterial. Westbound motorists on Pennsylvania Ave. seeking to travel southbound on the Northwest Arterial will be detoured north on the arterial to Asbury Rd. to Radford Rd. to Chavenelle Rd.
- Motorists on the Northwest Arterial seeking to travel westbound on Pennsylvania Ave. will be rerouted to Chavenelle Rd. or Asbury Rd.
Residents and businesses on the detour routes should prepare for increased traffic during the closure.
After the western half of the Pennsylvania Ave. intersection re-opens, the eastern half will be closed for approximately an additional two weeks. Those detour details will be shared closer to the closure.
This intersection reconstruction is part of the Northwest Arterial State of Good Repair Project, a multi-phased project that includes major pavement reconstruction and rehabilitation of the arterial roadway from US20 (Dodge St.) to John F. Kennedy Rd. The project includes reconstruction of both the arterial’s Pennsylvania Ave. and Asbury Rd. intersections; milling, repaving, and adding a four-foot shoulder to the southbound arterial lanes; and total reconstruction of the northbound arterial lanes.
