And It Begins...

Work starts Monday, March 14, on a project to rehabilitate Second Avenue from Howard to Arthur streets. The project also includes replacing a sewer main from Sheridan to Hatch streets and a water main from Howard to Stevens streets. Traffic signals will be upgraded, too.

Beginning Monday, Second Ave. from Arthur to Division streets will be reduced to one lane. The signalized intersections will be controlled by stop signs and all other intersections will be closed to traffic. This phase of the project is expected to continue until early May, and you can expect delays.

The $2.1 million project is being funded by the 10-Year Street Bond, Wastewater Department, Water Department, and safety funds.

And speaking of construction starting up, we sent the annual Construction Map to the printer today so you will be able to pick up your free copy sometime the week of Mar. 21 to help you avoid all those areas that could slow you down.
