Ward Avenue to see construction close to Marcus Cinema

You may have to take a different route to get to the movies for a couple of days. A section of Ward Avenue in La Crosse is temporarily closing near 21 st Terrace starting Monday.

The closure is happening so BNSF Railway can do repairs at the crossing in between the Mc Donald’s on Losey Boulevard and Marcus Cinema.

There will be a detour posted using 21 st Place, Weston Street and Losey Boulevard.

City officials say that the repairs should take about two days depending on the weather. They also say to be aware of changing traffic patters caused by the closure.
