New lane closures, detours
Two new lane closures and detours for the North Roosevelt Boulevard project are coming up.
The intersection of Truman Avenue and Eisenhower Drive will be partially and completely closed intermittently for up to four days during sewer work scheduled to start on June 25, according to spokesman Dean Walters.
Then, starting about June 28, for some two years and three months, there will be only one lane in each direction between Eisenhower Drive and First Street (Palm Avenue).
