  • Orr Drive will close from 66 Street to 67 Street on Sunday, August 13.

Detour maps for the Johnstone Drive and Orr Drive closures are available online at The schedule is dependent on weather conditions. In case of inclement weather, road closures will be rescheduled to the following weekend.

A new construction project at the 19 Street and Taylor Drive intersection is scheduled to start Monday, August 14 and will include concrete work, new traffic lights, road widening and additional turn lanes.
