The work is part of the $7.5 million Independence Boulevard project, which is reconstructing the existing two-lane concrete roadway into a four-lane concrete divided street. Construction began in August and is slated to end in November.
In addition, Staffordshire Road will be closed to through traffic north of Independence and south of Scanlin Road as part of the reconstruction. Knanaya Homes residents and patrons of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4010 will have access during construction, according to the city.
Court Road will remain closed east of Waterfall Drive. Meadowcreek residents can access Waterfall from the new Independence tie in. Traffic control and detour routes will be set up.
