Penn Avenue detour scheduled for train trestle project
A short section of Pennsylvania Avenue will be closed for a few days in October to allow for a beautification project to be completed at the train trestle underpass.
All four lanes of the street will be closed between Sycamore and Pecan streets Saturday and Sunday, October 6 and 7, and again Saturday through Monday, October 13-15. U.S. Highway 75 traffic will be rerouted west to 10th Street via Sycamore and Pecan.
The trestle beautification project is being completed by the Rturn organization and will include sandblasting and painting of the trestle as well as the installation of billboards on the north and south faces of the structure.
