Westbound Franklin Boulevard will be closed this weekend at East 11th Avenue. The closure is needed to allow construction crews room to safely remove a crane from the construction site of a new apartment building.
The closures are as follows:
- December 1, 2018 – westbound Franklin will be closed in the morning and last approximately eight hours
- December 2, 2018 – if crews are unable to fully remove the crane on Saturday, westbound Franklin will be closed again for about four hours
Traffic will be detoured onto East 11th Avenue, north onto Hilyard Street and then back onto East Broadway. There is already a detour in place for people who walk and bike.
People planning to take this route during the closure should expect delays and plan accordingly.
