Construction on Kathleen Avenue Begins Monday

I won't be here tomorrow so here's your construction warning for Monday morning:

Construction begins Monday to straighten the curves on Kathleen Avenue from Player Drive to St. Michelle. Safety concerns prompted the straightening of the roadway, as more and more bicyclists and outdoor enthusiasts began using Prairie Trail. A pedestrian-activated crossing light will be installed where Prairie Trail crosses Kathleen Avenue.

Traffic will be congested in this area with slowdowns and traffic pattern shifts. The work will take from six to eight weeks, finishing near the start of the new school season.
