Road Closures on Churchill Drive
Beginning earlier this week, Churchill Drive closed to through traffic and detoured onto Newman/Highland/Grand Ave.
There will be access from either end of the project dependent on the section under construction but will not have through access until the project is completed.
The first part of the project will have the road closed from Newman Ave to the entrances of St. Paul Church & Abby's Daycare in both directions and will last approximately two weeks.
Churchill Drive is part of the street repair program this year and will include the biggest price tag for the the program this year at an estimated $342,000. Because the majority of residents on that street live in rental units, the city will bear the overwhelming majority of this cost.
A small portion of the street will be paid by Newport.
