Beginning on March 16th, 2022, a City contractor will start construction on a raised crosswalk on Oakridge Avenue near Walnut Street. The crosswalk construction will require a closure of the north side of Oakridge Avenue at SR16/Idlewild Avenue up to Walnut Street to local traffic only (see map below). Traffic south on Oakridge Avenue will be detoured east on Walnut Avenue, to south on West Street to regain access to SR16/Idlewild Avenue. Construction coincides with Spring Break for all of Clay County schools in effort to minimize the impact on traffic and normal school operations. The crosswalk project is estimated to be completed within 48 hours. The Oakridge Avenue road closure is expected to reopen on March 18th, 2022. Thank you for your patience as we work to enhance the safety of your City roadways. Please direct questions to 904-297-7012 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
