PHASE TWO (April 13-19): From Monday, April 13, through Sunday, April 19, the Conn Ford Bridge will be completely closed to through traffic from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am. Melrose Road will be closed to westbound traffic just passed Kruse Farms, and closed to eastbound traffic just passed Shady Drive. Warning signs and delineators will be installed to notify the motoring public of the bridge closure and detours. Eastbound motorists will be instructed to utilize Old Melrose Road to West Harvard Avenue. Westbound motorists will be directed to take Northwest Garden Valley Road to Northwest Stewart Parkway.
