Highland Drive to be closed for pavement repairs beginning Wednesday.

Beginning Wednesday, May 29th, subject to any weather delays, the contractor for the levee project is planning to open Kelly Avenue and close down Highland Drive to vehicle traffic.

The closure will last an estimated 2.5 weeks, during which time the contractor will be installing new curb and gutter, base material, and asphalt paving on Highland Drive. During the closure, residents and visitors will be able to access Loomisland using the road through Garvin Park or by using Dike Road and Kelly Avenue. Highland Drive should be reopened to vehicle traffic in mid-June.
