Haven Street Open Again

Haven Street has just reopened to southbound traffic from Francis to Garland avenues. The street was closed as part of the rehabilitation of the Market Street corridor in Hillyard. That project is still underway and includes rehabilitating Market and Haven streets from Garland to Francis avenues and paving the following dirt streets: Rowan, Sanson, Everett, and Wabash avenues, from Market Street east to the railroad right-of-way.

Market Street from Garland to Francis avenues remains closed. Wellesley Avenue is open to traffic; and local access is being maintained on Broad, Wabash, Olympic, Queen, Diamond, and Rowan avenues from Haven to Market streets. Motorists are detoured to Crestline Street at Garland and Francis avenues.

The $5.6 million project is being funded by the City’s 10-Year Street Bond and state sources. Work is expected to be complete by mid-November.

Huh?? How do you cross Harmon Park? Haven stops north of Harmon Park and starts south of Harmon Park. Haven swings to Market at Rich, so the only way Haven can be open southbound from Francis to Garland is to have at least 2 lanes of Market open from Francis to Joseph and from Rich to Garland

Hmmm... very interesting. I took that word for word out of the City's news release. I'll give their PR lady over there a call and update it when I get the correct info. Thanks for noticing the discrepancy.

I drove down Market-Haven today from Francis to Garland. From Francis to the Hillyard Pool they have all 4 lanes done ONE coat of asphault, so a big bump at each end, so I guess they will do the second or finish coat when they get the rest done. South of Ziggys to Garland similar except only two south bound lanes done north bound lanes still look like a battle field as does downtown Hillyard.
