Placentia Avenue Road Closure and Detour Map
Beginning on Monday, January 6, 2014, Placentia Avenue, between Fender Avenue and Kimberly Avenue will be fully closed to through traffic for approximately sixty (60) days to allow for the construction of retaining walls and paving of the new roadway under the bridge. This closure will result in a detour route along the project area. For a map of the route, click here
