Center Street closes


Starting immediately, north and southbound traffic on Center Street from Seventh Avenue NE to 12th Avenue NE, is closed through Thursday, Aug. 29. All traffic will be detoured to Ninth Street NE. Access to businesses along this stretch will be available during the closure.

The closure was initially anticipated to only include southbound lanes, but is being expanded to a full road closure due to safety concerns for the workers in the area. This decision was sparked by an incident this morning of a motorist disobeying the initial closure and coming into contact with a worker. While the incident had the potential to be very serious, the worker escaped with no injuries.
