FIRESTONE — The closure of Sable Avenue is set to be lifted this week.

A one-mile stretch between Birch Street to the East I-25 Frontage Road was closed May 16 to allow contractors to install a new gravel surface on the roadway.

The road was set to open to traffic Tuesday, May 27, after press deadline.

The resurfacing was done in partnership with Encana Oil & Gas as part of an agreement made with the Town of Firestone upon approval of three special-use permit applications on April 23.
