Area Road Construction — Aug. 25

Area road construction and closure information for this week:

City of Clovis

Beginning Monday, Norris Street will be open to traffic between Mollie Circle And Wilhite Road.

Norris Street will be closed from the south side of Mollie Circle to Llano Estacado beginning Monday for reconstruction of the area which will begin with utility relocations as well as the installation of storm drains in the area. During construction, residents living in the Raintree Subdivision will need to use Woodlark Road to Llano Estacado Boulevard to exit and enter the subdivision. Pedestrian traffic for Mesa Elementary should use the east alleyway adjacent to Norris Street. Accommodations will be made to safely cross the construction at the drainage channel.

The Norris Street improvement project is scheduled for completion in January 2014.

Should you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Mr. Justin Howalt, City of Clovis Engineer, at (575) 769-2376 (extension 1828) or e-mail
