EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Traffic delays are possible Monday in downtown Eau Claire.

An increase in large truck volume is the reason for the possible delays as several loads of concrete are delivered to the new transit center that is being built on South Farwell Street between Main Street and Gray Street.

The City of Eau Claire said the times of greatest impact are expected to be between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m., but is subject to change. Delays could affect the roads around where the traffic center is being built as well as the main roads leading in and out of the construction site as concrete is delivered. A similar warning for potential traffic impacts was made on April 25 for the same reason.

The new building is replacing the old transit center, which was in service since 1985 and will have features like restrooms, heated and airconditioned waiting rooms, retail space, affordable housing, and more. The new transit center is expected to be open for use this fall. The project won’t be completed until spring 2023. The groundbreaking for the project was last September.

🚧 Know Before You Go! On Monday, May 16, work at the new Transit Transfer Center will see the delivery of several loads...
