Detours, street closing, parking restrictions
The City of Storm Lake would like to make citizens aware of the following detours, street closings and no parking restrictions that will be implemented in conjunction with this summer's street project on North Lake Avenue.
The North Lake Avenue Project is about to begin. Signage on North Lake Avenue will begin to be installed as early as Tuesday, May 28. Workers will be milling on North Lake Avenue from Milwaukee to north of Twelfth Street on Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31. North Lake Avenue will be closed to through traffic from Milwaukee to the south entrance of Wal-Mart/Hy-Vee and sections will be restricted to one lane traffic. In an effort to help the flow of traffic, a detour will be set up on Seneca Street from East Milwaukee to 13th Street. Drivers are encouraged to use this detour around the construction area for the entire time of the project. Following the completion of the milling process, workers will began to remove the pavement between Tenth and Wal-Mart/Hy-Vee. This pavement removal will require that this section of North Lake Avenue be completely closed to all traffic with the exception of a lane on each side to access business places in the closed section.
Motorist should also be aware that the intersection of North Lake Avenue and 13th Street will be converted into a four way stop during the construction period. Also during the construction period areas of temporary NO PARKING will be set up on the following streets:
* Seneca Street from East Milwaukee to 13th Street
* 13th Street from Seneca Street to North Lake Avenue
* 12th Street form Seneca Street to North Lake Avenue
* Erie Street from Milwaukee to 13th Street
Once again for the duration of the North Lake Avenue reconstruction project the following detour should be used to bypass the construction area.
Traffic traveling North on North Lake Avenue should use North Seneca Street from Milwaukee to 13th Street and 13th Street to North Lake Avenue. The intersection at 13th Street and North Lake Avenue will be a four way stop for the entire length of the project.
The City of Storm Lake will continue to keep citizens advised of work on the project and any additional detours or parking bans as work progresses. The city appreciates cooperation during this project, officials said.
The City of Storm Lake urges motorist to use the provided detour for access to points on North Lake Avenue and to use caution when traveling. Anyone who has any questions regarding these procedures should contact City Administration at 732-8002.
