A portion of Sunset Road in Brentwood will close on Monday, July 6 for paving work as part of the city's ongoing project to widen the road.

The road closure will begin at approximately 5:30 a.m. and will last as late as 8 p.m., according to a July 2 announcement from the city. Residents who live nearby should plan to take alternate routes.


"In order to be able to complete all the work on this section in one day, our crews will begin with equipment around daylight," Capital Projects Coordinator Jeff Donegan said in a statement. "Residents may hear some extra noise, but again, we hope to complete this work in one day, weather permitting.”

The road project, which began last year and is expected to be complete later this summer, will widen the roadway from Owl Creek to Concord Road from two to three lanes with a 10-foot multi-use trail on the west side.

The $8.9 million project is funded through the city's Capital Projects Fund.
