In order to maintain traffic flow on Thomas Avenue North (26th Avenue to West Broadway) during construction, two way traffic will be allowed for the duration of the project on this block. “No Parking” signage will be posted on Monday, 7/6 along the west side of Thomas Avenue North (26th Avenue to West Broadway) and become effective Tuesday, 7/7.
This block currently has signage that allows one way traffic only. The current "One Way" signage will be removed/covered to reflect this change.
