Extended road closure planned for lower Suits Us Drive

Road closed for paving project

Suits Us Drive, from U.S. 71 to Cedar Crest Drive, will be closed for an extended period starting Tuesday, Feb. 13.

The closure is expected to last approximately one month, depending on the weather, and is necessary for crews to complete work on the road’s paving project. Barricades will be in place to alert motorists of the closure.

The city contracted with APAC Central in November 2017 for the paving of Suits Us Drive. The original contract was slated to be completed by Feb. 12, 2018. However, this contract has been extended due to weather conditions we have experienced in our area this winter.

The project will widen the street surface to a full two lanes and correct drainage issues that have in the past narrowed the street to one lane in spots. Following completion, the route from U.S. 71 to Cunningham Drive will be a completely paved surface.

This is a planned street closure. However, weather and other unforeseen circumstances could delay this project.
