On Wednesday, March 26, 2014 and Thursday, March 27, 2014, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, the contractor will place the final layer of asphalt pavement along St. Mary’s Road from the westbound I-10 frontage Road to Church Avenue. St. Mary’s Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction during the paving operation. Officers will be on site to direct traffic.

  • Left turn movements and driveway access from St. Mary’s Road may be restricted for short periods of time while equipment moves through the area and to allow the asphalt pavement to cure.
  • Left turn movements from Granada Avenue and side streets to St. Mary’s Road may be restricted for short periods of time while equipment moves through the area and to allow the asphalt pavement time to cure.
  • North and south bound Granada Avenue traffic will be maintained. Short delays should be expected as equipment moves through the intersection.
  • Access to Davis Elementary School will be maintained at all times from Granada Avenue via Davis Street.
  • Motorists should expect delays during peak traffic times and plan to use an alternate route during this work.

Crews will also complete utility adjustments along the roadway. The final roadway striping will be installed along the roadway the end of April 2014, after the asphalt pavement has had time to cure.

  • On Monday, March 31, 2014 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning, crews will paint temporary striping along the roadway. Expect intermittent lane restrictions. Turn movements will be maintained.
