Due to ongoing residential development, Elite Road (between Red Hawk Golf Road and Ojai Avenue) will be closed to through traffic so that the contractor can work on utility tie-ins. The road closure will begin on Thursday, May 28, and will last approximately five working days.
For the public’s convenience, a detour will be in place to guide drivers around the construction area. Crews will work only from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday leaving the evenings and weekends free of construction activity. The road closure will not affect RoadRUNNER Transit routes.
The City has verified that no conflicting public or private construction projects will take place in that immediate area during this time.
Access to residents will be maintained by leaving the driveways accessible.
For more information, call the Public Works Department/Construction Management at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
