Jersey Ridge Road will be closed to all traffic between Lombard and Central Park Avenue for private sewer repairs beginning Monday. The contractor estimates the work will be completed and the road reopened by next Friday.
CitiBus Route 3, Yellow Line, will be detoured Monday through Friday as a result of the closure. The detour for Route 3: Outbound: Left on Elm, right on Lorton, right on Columbia, left on Jersey Ridge Road and back on route. Inbound: Left on Columbia, right on Lorton, right on Elm, left on Jersey Ridge Road and back on route.
Also, the inside westbound and eastbound lanes of River Drive at Gaines Street will be closed for storm water sewer repairs.
With the closure there will be no left turn onto Gaines Street at River Drive. This is the access to The River’s Edge and Modern Woodmen Park. Alternate access to Gaines Street is available using Marquette Street to Beiderbecke Drive through Centennial Park, or using Western Avenue and crossing River Drive into the Florian Keen parking lot.
The length of the closure will depend on the problem crews find and the repair strategy selected.
