While N. Manhattan Ave. is fully closed between Little Moro and Bluemont Avenue, it remains open to northbound vehicular traffic (red arrows pictured above) and pedestrian traffic on both sides of the street (green arrows pictured above) between East Laramie Street and Moro Street. The only area two-way vehicular traffic can access is Aggieville via West Laramie Street.

The city warns drivers to expect light traffic and possible delays during this phase of the construction project which the contractor estimates will take 4 weeks to complete.
