Congress Street Should Reopen Next Week From 6th Ave. to Stone

October 10, 2012

Congress Street will remain closed to vehicle traffic this week, said Jesse Gutierrez, the streetcar project construction manager for the City Transportation Department.

Congress will open from 6th Avenue to Stone Avenue next Monday but the same detours will still be in place because streetcar track work is still underway between 5th and 6th Avenues.

Congress should be open from Toole to Stone Avenue the week of Oct. 22, Gutierrez said.

However, Congress from Stone to Church Avenue – the block with the Fox Theatre – will remain closed until likely December.
