Jackson drivers will want to know about a major street closure ahead of their Monday morning commute. Wildwood Avenue between S. Wisner Street and S. West Avenue will close to traffic the morning of Monday, Jan. 23 so the City of Jackson Department of Public Works (DPW) can safely trim trees along the street.
Wildwood Avenue is a busy street that connects neighborhoods on the west side of the City to Downtown Jackson and the West Avenue commercial corridor. DPW crews are trimming tree branches that potentially pose a threat to utility lines, vehicle traffic and pedestrians if they were to come down in a weather event. Public Works plans on closing Wildwood Avenue at 8 a.m. and expect to have the street back open in the afternoon.
Because this is a short closure, no detour will be posted. Drivers are asked to plan alternate routes, such as using W. Michigan Avenue or W. Ganson Street. Updates about the closure will be posted on the City website and Facebook page.
