Road Construction May Affect Cycling Traffic - 50th Street

Street resurfacing on 50th Street between Center Street and Grover Street may affect cycling traffic on nearby 48th Street.

50th Street, running northbound and southbound will be closed to through traffic Monday, July 6, through Thursday, July 9, 2009 during the day. It's possible that (potentially frustrated) motorist traffic seeking a through route will detour to 48th Street, which is a popular route for cyclists due to the steady grade and reduced traffic, thanks to some traffic calming speed bumps.

Cyclists operating in this area should be extra careful this week.
