On Thursday, construction activity on McKinley Avenue will leave the sidewalk and bike lane disrupted.

The construction–produced by Horizon Underground and BNSF Railroad, in conjunction with the city of Fresno–will impact the north side of McKinley, just west of Blackstone. Pedestrian and bike traffic will be rerouted to McKinley’s south side. Construction will begin at 9 a.m., and should be complete by 4 p.m.

All traffic lanes will remain open, and vehicle access to the FCC campus should be unimpeded.

Construction should be completed in a day, but may extend into Friday.
