Francis Avenue Project Wrapping Up


A project to rehabilitate Francis Ave. from Freya to Havana streets is nearing completion and will reopen to traffic early next week. Until then, traffic remains reduced to one lane in each direction. Paving will take place tomorrow and Saturday with final detail work taking place early next week. The project widened Francis Ave. to a five-lane roadway with a continuous center turn lane and installed sidewalks, bike lanes, and a swale/planting strip.

The $1.3 million project was funded by the Transportation Improvement Board and Real Estate Excise Tax money.
