Section of Southwest Hook Road to Close on June 3

Section of Southwest Hook Road to Close on June 3

The eastbound lane of Southwest Hook Road from Southwest Arthur Drive to Southwest Ward Road is set to close on June 3 and remain closed for approximately eight weeks as part of an improvement project. Crews will be constructing six-foot-wide paved shoulders along each side of Southwest Hook Road.

Local traffic access only will be allowed eastbound on Southwest Hook Road between Horridge Road and Southwest Arthur Drive. Detours will be posted and are available via Horridge Road, M-150 Highway and Southwest Ward Road. After shoulders along the eastbound lane have been constructed, the eastbound lane will re-open and the westbound lane will close for approximately eight weeks.

This project will provide safer access for pedestrians and bicycle traffic, provide a paved surface for emergency situations and reduce ongoing maintenance of turf shoulders. The project is funded by the 2007 Capital Improvement Sales Tax.

All construction work is weather permitting. For more information, contact Public Works at 969-1800 or publicworks@cityofLS.net.
