Construction on that stretch of Commerce is part of a bond project that includes road reconstruction, sidewalk improvements and way-finding signage.

One lane of westbound traffic will remain open from Flores Street to Camaron Street, allowing access to affected downtown businesses.

Detour signs will be posted to alert drivers and pedestrians will have access to sidewalks on the north side of the roadway, between Flores and Santa Rosa streets.
