Additional portions of 19th Street will be closed to traffic today as construction crews work to complete improvements to the intersection of 19th and Louisiana streets.
Crews today will close 19th Street from Tennessee to Kentucky streets for repaving. The work also will disrupt traffic flow on Tennessee and Kentucky streets. Motorists on those two streets will not be able to cross 19th Street today.
The portion of 19th Street from Ohio to Alabama has been closed to motorists for most of the summer to allow crews to rebuild the intersection and install new turning lanes as well as a more advanced traffic signal.
The repaving work is one of the final steps in rebuilding the intersection. The entire stretch of road is scheduled to be open to traffic next week, barring any weather delays.
