Traffic delays expected at Paramount & I-40 April 30-May 8

Motorists should expect delays at I-40 and Paramount from April 30-May 8.

Construction of a new water main set to begin Wed., April 30, will cause minor traffic delays on Paramount Boulevard and the eastbound I-40 access road.

The construction will require the closure of the right-hand lane of northbound Paramount Boulevard and the right-hand lane of the eastbound I-40 access road. During construction, traffic will be reduced to one northbound lane on Paramount Boulevard.

The City and its contractor will work diligently to minimize any adverse effects of this closure to area motorists and residents.

All lanes are expected to reopen by Thurs., May 8. Until then, motorists are advised to use caution and expect minor delays.
