Southbound Business 51 lane closures scheduled in Rothschild next week

July 24, 2014

Motorists can expect single lane closures on southbound Business 51, between Eagle Nest Boulevard and Morrison Avenue, in Rothschild, beginning Monday, July 28.

The lane closures are necessary for crews to relocate the existing utilities for an upcoming improvement project.

It will also be necessary to close the southbound, left-turn lane to Imperial Avenue (County XX) for the utility relocations. When the left-turn lane is closed, southbound Business 51 motorists are advised to use Eagle Nest Boulevard to access the Cedar Creek Mall area.

Some short-term delays can be expected during peak traffic hours. Motorists should allow extra time for travel.

Work is currently scheduled for completion by noon on Friday, August 1. The schedule is subject to change based on favorable weather conditions and construction status.
