Improvements require street closures

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has announced the left lane of North Trenton Street (U.S. 167) from West Florida Avenue to West Alabama Avenue will be closed beginning Tuesday, July 5 for approximately three months. 

The lane closure is required to reconstruct the parking lane, concrete curb and gutter, and sidewalk along North Trenton between West Georgia Avenue and West Alabama Avenue. The work is associated with the City of Ruston’s Downtown Revitalization Project.

The City of Ruston’s project to improve utilities, sidewalks, and lighting between the Louisiana Tech campus and the downtown area continues with some disruption of traffic.

West Texas Avenue between South Monroe and South Homer streets, which are near the Early Childhood Education Center on Tech’s campus, will be closed until work on that street is completed. A date for completion of this portion of the project is not available currently.

The city of Ruston is currently working in a large project to improve utilities, sidewalks and lighting on the east side of campus. In addition, the city is working to improve Tech’s 100-year-old drainage system of that area.
