Jackson Ave. road closure extends through Thursday

Road closures on Jackson Avenue in McAllen will extend through 5 p.m. Thursday, officials announced via a news release.

According to the release, motorists traveling east and westbound on Jackson Avenue — between South 8th Street and South 2nd Street — will be detoured to neighboring streets. 

The road closure is part of the Kennedy Avenue drainage improvement project, and consists of final pavement repairs and right-of-way restorations.
