River Road will be closed at the interstections of 6th and 7th streets on Wednesday, March 25 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for final flood cleanup.

Construction, Maintenance and Utilities Road Closures

Frankfort Avenue will be closed between River Road and Story Avenue April 6 through April 8 for repairs to the railroad crossing at River Road. Local and emergency access will be provided. 

Broad Run Road in front of number 8301 is restricted to one lane for repair of a failing retaining wall.  This location includes a sizeable embankment over a box culvert with concrete retaining walls. We have installed monitoring points and will be watching the roadway for any shifting or settling movements.  If such movements are noted we will have to close the road to traffic.
