Russell Closed at Eastern This Weekend

Russell Road will be closed at Eastern Avenue from 8 p.m. Friday, March 25, to 8 p.m. Sunday, March 27, due to an ongoing repaving project.

Eastern will remain open this weekend but will be limited to one lane in each direction. Also, turns from Eastern onto Russell will be restricted.

Traffic on Russell will be detoured around the intersection and drivers are advised to avoid the area during the closure, if possible.

The weekend closure and lane restrictions are necessary to shorten the time needed to complete the repaving work in the intersection.

The overall project includes repaving Russell from Paradise Road to Mt. Vista Street; and repaving Eastern from Sunset Road to Tompkins Avenue.

Aggregate Industries is the contractor on the project, which is expected to be complete in July.
