An 8-story former office building at 1500 Newell Ave. is being demolished to make way for a new 4-story residential/commercial building. As a result, there will likely be some traffic nightmares in the area that will hopefully be over by Thanksgiving.
According to the city's website, the Main St./Newell Ave. intersection will have "significant lane closures" beginning on Nov. 5 (next Tuesday), between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The closures will include:
Main Street, southbound, between Broadway Plaza and Newell Avenue;
- Newell Avenue, eastbound, between the Newell Promenade entrance and Main Street, except for one lane that will be right-turn only onto South Main Street;
- Newell Avenue, westbound, between Main Street and the Newell Promenade entrance.
The Kaiser Permanente garage entrance on Newell will remain open.
Also, Newell Promenade shops on Newell between Main Street and California will remain open.
