Repairs at 19th and Ohio to slow, divert traffic Wednesday, Thursday
Scheduled pavement-repair work will be expected to cause traffic detours and delays Wednesday and Thursday in the area of 19th and Ohio streets. Contractors are scheduled to start work Wednesday on a project to repair pavement at the intersection. The pavement problem allows water to pool in the area - particularly at a patch in a crosswalk - and the repairs will be expected to improve drainage. As work continues, traffic heading east along 19th will be diverted into the center lane near Ohio. A member of the contractor crew will be posted at the intersection of 19th and Indiana streets, to help warn traffic to slow down. A stretch of Ohio will be closed north of the intersection, as repairs continue. Crews expected to complete the work sometime Thursday.
