Traffic to be detoured away from Main Avenue

The summer construction season is shutting down another Durango street, this time closing both northbound lanes of Main Avenue between 13th and 14th streets from today until June 28.

All northbound traffic will be detoured to East Second Avenue so construction crews can make repairs to the storm drainage system before the start of the monsoon season in July. Southbound lanes won’t be affected.

Levi Lloyd, the streets superintendent, said the project probably will be completed sooner than June 28, but he said he wants the public to be prepared.

The public should anticipate traffic delays and take alternate routes when possible.
