Watch for Detours on Milliken Ave. Next Week
Weather permitting; installation of the railroad bridge girders over Milliken Avenue just south of the I-10 freeway will take place early next week.
The Milliken Avenue Grade Separation is a $50 million project planned for completion in June 2013. The new construction will elevate the existing railroad tracks over Milliken Avenue, enhancing traffic flow and reducing vehicular congestion and emissions. The girder installations next week will require road closures on Milliken Avenue from Guasti Road to Airport Drive. To minimize impacts to the community, road closures are scheduled at night, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Monday, January 23, Tuesday, January 24 and Monday, January 30. Detours and alternate routes will be posted.
