  • Construction Hours: Generally 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, however, if demolition or construction needs to occur in front of a business that opens early, work may be scheduled into the early hours of the morning or late in the afternoon.
  • Impacts:
    • Only 1 lane of through traffic will be provided on each street throughout the length of the project. Parking will be available in the coned areas where construction is not occurring. This will not be advertised.
    • The bike lane is closed on both streets indefinitely.
    • Pedestrian access is 100% and detours are provided (w/ flagman in some cases) where construction activities necessitate a closure of the sidewalk.
    • Bus stops are still in operation, relocated bus stops will go into effect this week.
    • There is a lot of demolition scheduled, we will try to keep it between 8 to 3 if possible.
  • The Contractor is trying to pave out the job the week of Dec 17th and be complete with Striping for Christmas. This is not likely anymore, more realistic is to be paved after the New Year given the two weeks of rain and the number of Curb Ramps and Alley Aprons that still need to be removed and replaced.
