Portions of West 32nd Street closure starts January 10

Starting Monday, January 10, West 32nd Street will be closed from Schifferdecker Avenue to the entrance of Westberry Square neighborhood. Detour routes will be posted and access to local properties will be maintained at all times. This closure is expected to reach into April and is the first of multiple closures occurring consecutively on different sections of 32nd Street. Citizens should anticipate closures along 32nd Street to occur through the summer of 2023.

Contractor for the 32nd Street widening project is Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. This improvement will widen 32nd Street, from Schifferdecker Avenue west to Central City Road.  The design includes adding a center lane and constructing a sidewalk-shared use path.  The $8 million project is funded through the 3/8 cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax approved by voters in 2014.  Completion of this project is set for summer 2023.
