Charleston Road reconstruction will require full closure in June

Adam Curtis Public Affairs Press Releases

Charleston Road will be closed between the Highway 90 Bypass and Colombo Avenue from May 31 to approximately July 1 while the pavement along this section is removed and replaced.

Motorists will be able to use detours along Highway 90, Campus Drive, and Colombo Avenue during this first phase of the Charleston Road Pavement Replacement and Pavement Overlay Project. To access the Plaza Vista Shopping Center, motorists can use the western entrance/exit located along Highway 90.

A full closure will enable KE&G crews to complete a needed reconstruction of Charleston Road between Highway 90 and just east of Tree Top Avenue as quickly as possible. The start date was selected to avoid conflicts with Buena High School graduation.

In addition to the reconstruction, crews will complete improvements further east along Charleston Road, conducting edge milling and installing a pavement overlay between Treetop Avenue and Giulio Cesare Avenue. This work will require lane closures, but two-way traffic will always be maintained along this section. The project is expected to be completed in full by the second week of August.

Digital message boards in the area will display real-time traffic control information throughout the project. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and traffic control signs, obey posted speed limits, and be on the alert for workers and equipment. When possible, drivers are urged to take an alternate route to avoid the area.
