Today marks the beginning of the Central Avenue pavement reconstruction work. The Contractor began pavement removal of the west side of Central Avenue. The contractor will begin building the new pavement of the west side of Central Avenue after the old pavement is removed. Right now there is one lane one way northbound only traffic on Central Avenue between 47th Street and Burlington Avenue. Southbound travel on the open lane is prohibited. Residents on Central will retain access to their driveways during the west side construction, but residents should anticipate there may be contractor trucks and equipment blocking the single lane at times during regular working hours. Street parking is currently not allowed on Central Avenue within the work zone. The Spring Rock Park parking lot entrance at the Elm Street will remain accessible during this work.
Sewer work will continue on Elm Street over the next several weeks. Right now the Contractor is installing storm sewer on Elm just east of Central. They will continue working eastward until they reach Lawn Avenue. The Grand Ave and Woodland Avenue intersections will be impacted by the storm sewer work when the Contractor gets to these intersections. There will be temporary closures of these intersections while the contractor is working in the intersections.
