Ely Road will close Thursday morning, October 15 between Monroe Drive and Roosevelt Road for two culvert replacements. The closure will last approximately 30-36 hours. This stretch of Ely Road is scheduled to reopen to all traffic on Friday afternoon, October 16. Due to the short duration of the closure, a detour will not be posted. Traffic is encouraged to stay on paved routes (76th Avenue and C Street).
The Ely Road closure from Wright Brothers Blvd south to the Ely city limits is still in effect and is expected to remain closed for another 5-7 days. There is a posted detour for this closure.
