Travelers Encouraged to Avoid Certain Areas

Motorists should avoid:
• 91st Avenue for a half-mile north of Olive Avenue
• 75th Avenue between Northern Avenue and Golden Lane
Local access is still available, but lane
restrictions and standing water will cause delays in these areas.
Additionally, city traffic engineers advise motorists to avoid the outside
travel lanes on all streets during heavy rainfall. These lanes are designed to
carry rain water into storm drains, and may be flooded.
