A section of Laporte Avenue between Taft Hill Road and Grandview Avenue will fully close to traffic, including pedestrians and bicycles, beginning Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023.

The closure will continue through May 2023, weather permitting, and will allow crews to replace two bridges over the New Mercer Canal.

This work will precede additional pedestrian and bicycle improvements along the corridor. Early construction on this project began in November.

Drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists should plan alternate routes around the closure. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained.
