Cole Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Main Street and Wheaton Court starting Friday, July 16, 2021 as crews with the City’s contractor, Plote Construction, begin road reconstruction work as part of the City’s 2021 Road Program. This closure is expected to last approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
Detour signs will be posted directing Main Street traffic to use Harrison Avenue or Geneva Road.
For northbound traffic, the detour route is:
- Northbound Main Street, to westbound Geneva Road, to southbound Gary Avenue, to eastbound Thomas Street, to northbound Papworth onto Cole Avenue
For southbound traffic, the detour route is:
- Southbound Main Street, to eastbound Harrison Avenue, to northbound Gary Avenue, to eastbound Thomas Street, to northbound Papworth Street
The detour for Cole Avenue residents:
- Westbound to Cole Avenue, to northbound Papworth Street, to eastbound Geneva Road, to southbound Main Street.
The contractor will provide emergency access from Main Street; however it is suggested to enter Cole Avenue from Papworth Street. We appreciate your patience as we work to make improvements to Wheaton's roads.
