The City of Brookings has scheduled a temporary closure of Western Avenue South from Railroad Street to approximately the south driveway into Rainbow Plan Systems starting on Monday, September 29, 2014 for approximately two weeks for a drainage improvement project. The east half of the intersection of Railroad Street and Western Avenue will also be closed for sanitary sewer work. Local traffic will be allowed access to the Brookings Regional Airport, Pheasants Fury, Rainbow Play Systems and the Airport Business Plaza from the south off 2nd Street South. The north Rainbow Play Systems driveway will have access from the north off Western Avenue. The detour route is to use Division Avenue. This temporary closure will allow the contractors to safely install new sanitary sewer and new storm sewer in Western Avenue South. The project also involves constructing a new storm water detention pond, erosion control and seeding.
