West and East Avenues Update
The contractor is currently working on removals and grading on the east side of East Avenue from Third Street to Sixth Street. Temporary ramps have been placed to cross East Avenue at Third Street and at Fifth Street. The pedestrian ramps should be complete within the next two weeks or so. The contractor is shooting for milling the pavement on West Avenue, East Avenue, and Fifth Street the week of October 7. We are hoping that the paving work on these streets will be completed around October 19.
The remaining pedestrian ramp work on Seventh Street is currently waiting for some utility conflicts to be resolved. Once the utilities are out of the way, these ramps will be finished off. The milling work on Seventh Street is scheduled for the week of October 7 and the paving work is scheduled for the week of October 14.
Work will be starting on the pedestrian ramps on the north/east side of Tyler Road from Highway 61 to Bench Street this week! One lane will be closed on that side of the street to allow for crews to work on those ramps. We anticipate that this work will take a few weeks to complete before moving over to the south/west side. Milling and paving of Tyler Road is now scheduled for spring 2020 due to delays in the project and not wanting to pave in poor conditions.
Old West Main Street
Work will be starting on the pedestrian ramps on the north side of Old West Main Street the week of October 7. No lane closures should be required for this work. When the north side is complete, work will shift to the south side. Milling and paving on Old West Main Street is now scheduled for spring 2020.
