Concrete crews are finishing placing segments of sidewalk, pads for bus stops, and driveway sections. Once the concrete is placed, please keep off the surface for seven days to allow the concrete to cure and harden.
Landscape crews are regrading yards, placing topsoil and working in the parkstrips on the west side of Harrison Boulevard.
Harrison Boulevard will remain restricted to one lane in each direction until work is complete.
2nd Street: Monroe Avenue to Harrison Boulevard
Curb and gutter installation will continue at the intersection of 2nd Street and Harrison Boulevard. Crews will be completing sewer and water line connections. Residents should anticipate periodic closures of 2nd Street during the work. Drivers may use Eccles Avenue as an alternative route.
Traffic on 2nd Street is reduced to one lane during work hours. Flaggers are placed at the intersection to safely direct drivers through the work zone. 2nd Street remains closed to out-of-area traffic. Access for local residents is permitted.
