Santa Fe Street between I-35 and Mur-Len will be closed for asphalt resurfacing from 12:00 a.m. until noon (at the latest) on Sunday, August 23rd, weather permitting. Detours will be in place for east and west bound traffic, but access to businesses may not be available during that time.
After an evaluation of the project, it was determined that complete closure and working through the night and morning hours would have the least impact on businesses and motorists. Keeping the road open during construction would require five or more days of continual access disruptions, traffic delays and impacts to businesses.
The street closing will allow for resurfacing of Santa Fe along the east bound lanes including the Clairborne and Mur-Len intersections. Any remaining paving work required, including west bound lanes, will be conducted between 7:00 p.m. on August 24th and 5:30 a.m. on August 25th. However, at least one lane in each direction would be available to through traffic.
