September 22, 2023 — Starting Monday, September 25, the second phase of the LaSalle Avenue Streetscape Project will get underway. Construction will move to the north side of the street from Hill Street to the St. Joe River. The Hill and Niles intersections will only be open for westbound traffic to turn south. Motorists will still only be allowed to travel westbound on LaSalle Avenue from St. Louis Boulevard to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Motorists will not be able to access LaSalle Avenue from the north in this vicinity during construction.
The eastbound detour for LaSalle Avenue will be south on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, then east on Colfax Avenue to Eddy Street. Access to all businesses in the impacted areas will be maintained during construction.
The LaSalle Avenue Streetscape Project includes a number of enhancements to slow traffic speed and create safer bike and pedestrian facilities. Construction will occur in three phases and is expected to wrap up in November.
