On Monday, officials say that O’Loane Avenue, from Lorne Avenue to Dannecker Road, will be temporarily closed to northbound traffic. They say the closure is expected to last around ten weeks and it’s to allow for asphalt resurfacing. Also starting on Monday, the city says planned road construction at Willow Street and Pleasant Drive will begin. The city bus stop at Willow/Babb and Willow/Pleasant will be out of service and a temporary stop will be placed at Hickory and Willow.
