On Saturday June 28th, 2014 Commonwealth Avenue will be closed to traffic from approximately 8 AM until 2 PM Sunday morning when it reopens. Commonwealth Avenue will close again Sunday June 29th at 9 AM and will reopen at 4PM.

During the event traffic will be detoured to 99th and 101st Avenues West. 99th Avenue West will be signed as ONE WAY NORTHBOUND, and 101st Avenue West will be signed as ONE WAY SOUTHBOUND.

Southbound traffic on Commonwealth will be directed west on Reis street, south on 101st Avenue West to Gary street, then east on Gary street back to Commonwealth Avenue.
