Delays on 17th St. today


Drivers should expect slow, congested traffic this morning along a portion of 17th Street.

Work was scheduled to start at 7:30 a.m. and finish about three hours later.

As a result of the work, drivers should expect:

Traffic on 17th to pass through a continual, yellow-blinking light.

Traffic westbound on 17th will be restricted to one lane approaching St. Clair.

St. Clair will be closed to all traffic between 16th and 17th streets.

Northbound traffic on St. Clair will be forced to turn right on 17th Street.
