Louisiana Tech University and the City of Ruston have broken ground on the first phase of a utility development and streetscape project along Homer Street that will result in major improvements to the underground infrastructure, aesthetics, and navigation of the above ground spaces between Louisiana Tech’s campus and downtown Ruston.
As a result of these enhancements, certain roads and intersections along Homer Street will have to be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic over the next several months. These closures are necessary for the safety of our campus community and construction crews, and the timely completion of the project.
ROAD CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Texas Avenue, from Homer Street to College Street, will be closed beginning Friday, September 23, 2011 at 7:00 A.M. through Monday, October 3, 2011 at 7:00 A.M. (weather permitting).
Louisiana Avenue, from Homer Street to College Street, and Homer Street, from Louisiana Avenue to the KCS Railroad, will be closed beginning Monday, October 3, 2011 at 7:00 A.M. through Monday, October 10, 2011 at 5:00 P.M. (weather permitting).
Any road closure or project updates will be immediately posted to this website.
