North White Chapel Boulevard widening
In late April crews closed about 500 feet of East Highland Street heading into North White Chapel Boulevard to traffic. The road was closed to help crews smooth out the grade between White Chapel and Highland. The road will remain closed through May. With the closure, vehicles will not be able to turn east onto Highland from North White Chapel or cross the intersection as they drive west. Drivers coming from the west will be diverted north or south on North White Chapel. Vehicles will still be able to turn west onto Highland from North White Chapel or continue north and south on North White Chapel. Access to New Day Church will be affected, and a new entrance for the church is being constructed.
