2018 Roadway Program - Project Update 10/1/2018

Lawn Avenue

The east lane of Lawn Avenue was completed on Friday. The pavement is curing, which is the process of the concrete building enough strength to handle the weight of everyday traffic without failing. The curing process of the concrete used takes 2-5 days. Construction on the west lane of Lawn Avenue is tentatively scheduled to take place at the end of this week or early next week. The west lane of Lawn Avenue will be re-opened for use as a temporary one-way street until the west lane is completed. 

The sidewalk on the east side of Lawn Avenue will be removed tomorrow, Tuesday, October 2, 2018, weather permitting. A temporary sidewalk path will be created on the new east lane pavement, as it is cured enough to handle foot traffic. Temporary stone access to each business will be installed. The new concrete sidewalk is scheduled to be poured this week and re-opened before the weekend. 

Update 10/1/2018 11:45 PMThe sidewalk removal of the east side of Lawn Avenue has been scheduled for later in the week. Concrete test results have come back and the concrete pavement on the east side of Lawn is not fully cured yet.

Johnson Avenue

The contractor is on schedule to remove all of the east lane pavement by the end of the week. Concrete crews will be on-site to pour the new curb,driveway aprons, and pavement this week and next week.  The east side of the intersections of Johnson Avenue/45th and Johnson Avenue /46th will be removed and replaced with temporary stone. Please be cautious when driving in these areas and any areas currently under construction.
