If you live on the southeast side of town and/or commute on or around Reed Market Road, be aware that Reed Market is going to be closed for a few weeks starting September 22. Here’s the release the City sent out:
Reed Market Rd. will be closed in both directions beginning Tuesday morning, September 22 at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad crossing. BNSF is rebuilding the crossing and detours will be in place. The best and least congested route around the closure is via 15th St., Greenwood Ave. and 3rd St. Only local traffic should use Reed Market Rd., Wilson Ave., Bear Creek Rd., Franklin Ave. and 9th St (see attached map). Flaggers will be in place at some intersections to help control the flow of traffic.
The BNSF project is scheduled to be completed by Tuesday, October 6. At that time, Reed Market Rd. will be fully open in both directions from 3rd St. to 27th St.
