Ongoing road work at the Hines Street at Oakwood Avenue intersection will result in some changing traffic patterns in the coming days. At the end of this week, road crews will begin the final phase of the months-long project to rebuild and widen the roadways. On Friday, May 3, the newly completed stretch of Oakwood between Hamilton St. and Hines St. will reopen to traffic. At the same, time, Oakwood- between Hamilton and Friendly Ford- will close to traffic. Homes and businesses will retain access during this time.
The project, which is set to be done this summer, will result in Hines Ave. having three lanes (two driving lanes and a center turn lane) between U.S. 60 and Oakwood. Likewise, Oakwood itself will have three lanes between U.S. 60 and a point just south of Hines.
