A note from the city engineer …
Sanitary sewer, watermain, and storm sewer replacement is in the final stages of construction with service laterals being installed the week of August 22, 2016.
Pavement removals will be starting on the southbound lanes from Pine Street south to Oak Creek Parkway starting as early as Thursday August 18th.
During pavement installation, the road will be detoured and opened for local and business access only. Northbound traffic will be detoured onto Hawthorne, Memorial and Pine, and back to Chicago Avenue. Southbound traffic will be detoured at Walnut, Oak Creek Parkway, and back to Chicago Avenue. Local access as allowed, will be on gravel at certain times.
For northbound lanes, from the bridge to Hawthorne, concrete should be complete for the start of school on September 1st. (E.W. Luther) The balance of paving work and other work should be complete by mid-October.
Please use alternative routes as much as possible.
And I have two asks as mayor: Please be patient, and please support the local businesses impacted by this project. I know they would appreciate it!
