2018 Roadway Program - Johnson Avenue Asphalt Grinding/East Lane Start Date

Johnson Avenue Asphalt Removals

The contractor is scheduled to grind and remove the asphalt on Johnson Avenue on September 20, 2018, weather permitting. The asphalt will be removed from the entire roadway. Residents will not lose any access to their driveways during this portion of the project, but on-street parking will not be available during the removals. Please be aware that there will be heavy machinery and construction workers on-site. Please drive safety when entering or exiting the work zone.

Johnson Avenue East Lane Removal

The contractor is targeting the last week of September for the removal of the east driving lane of Johnson Avenue. An exact start date will be sent out sometime next week. The removal of the east driving lane will remove access to any resident with a driveway on that side of the street. Unrestricted, on-street parking, will be available on the following streets while access to driveways are unavailable. This applies to areas with hourly parking restrictions. Areas that are signed as "No Parking" will not be available:

  • Franklin Avenue (Burlington to 47th)
  • 45th Street (Wolf-Franklin)
  • 46th Street (Wolf - Franklin)

The Police Department has been notified. If you do receive a ticket, please inform us at your convenience. 

Lawn Avenue Update

The contractor will be pouring the new curb on the east side of Lawn Avenue on Monday, weather permitting. Once the curb is poured, the east lane will be prepped. The east lane is estimated to be poured next week as well. The contract will begin work on the west lane of Lawn Avenue once the east lane has cured and can be driven on. A start date for the west lane of Lawn Avenue will be provided sometime next week.
