ROAD CLOSURE: Busy Johnston Route Affected
Many commuters who live in Johnston are taking a new route home Monday.
Northwest Beaver Drive is closed while the city adds another lane to the road between Northwest Johnston Drive and Northwest 62nd Street.
An estimated 9,000 drivers use the road every day.
City officials say the additional lane is necessary to accommodate Johnston’s growth.
“Most of the traffic through this area have precipitated the need for a lot of the improvements that you`ll be seeing in Johnston, including this one,” Johnston Public Works Dave Cubit said.
Officials estimate 15,000 vehicles will use this road daily by 2035.
