Keep up to date with Midland road closures and construction updates

The intersection of N. Garfield St. and Golf Course Rd. will be closed starting Monday, April 10, 2023. The scope of work, expected to last three months, includes the replacement of storm sewer, sanitary sewer, water lines, traffic signal equipment, and paving. The replacement of utilities will include deep trenches. The goal is to replace all distressed city-owned utilities and ultimately pave the intersection with concrete designed to last 40-plus years.

Traffic will be detoured through the following streets:

  • Community Ln.
  • North “N” St.
  • Boyd Ave.
  • Princeton Ave.
  • Sparks St.
  • Humble Ave.

Drivers should be aware that the detours in place will be through the neighboring streets, and it is especially important to adhere to the posted speed limits in the area.

Local business and residential access will be maintained at all times from either side of the closure.

2017 Midland Road Bond:

The work on N. Garfield St., from Louisiana Ave. north to Golf Course Rd., is part of the 2017 Road Bond Program that includes the paving of 22.6 miles of roadway. Approximately 19 miles (84%) of the roadways selected for the bond program are paved and open to the public.
