On Wednesday, June 16, the City of Tyler Street Department closed both lanes of the 1100 block of East Lake Street between Elizabeth Drive and Magnolia Drive for emergency drainage and street repair. After assessing the situation, it has been determined that the structural integrity of the culvert under East Lake Street has been compromised. This section of the road will remained closed for major repair until further notice.

“We are currently evaluating the system and considering our options,” said Carter Delleney, City Engineer. “We are carefully inspecting the drainage culvert to determine whether or not we will need to replace the structure.”
 
Travelers will be rerouted to alleviate corridors. Eastbound traffic is currently diverted southbound onto Elizabeth Drive. Westbound traffic is currently diverted north and southbound onto Magnolia Drive. Drivers should use caution when traveling in this area and obey all traffic signs.
