Get ready for another week of traffic congestion and detours at the intersection of Park Street and the 250 Bypass. Crews plan to install new drainage structures and patch the asphalt at that intersection. There will be brief detours and ramp closures for drivers on Park Street who want to head west on the bypass and for those who take the Park Street ramp from the eastbound lanes of the bypass. This project will take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Drivers who want to avoid traffic backups at the Park Street intersection are encouraged to use the Locust Avenue ramps for a U-turn.
