Work on the next phase of the streetscape program in the downtown central business district continues the week of March 18, 2013. This phase of work will include new curb and gutter, sidewalk and pavement on Spring Street between Division Street and Kimball Street and on Dexter Avenue between Douglas Avenue and Center Street. New trees will be planted, along with installation of brick paver crosswalks. Work on this phase of the program is expected to be completed by mid-September.
Beginning Monday, March 18, the intersection of Spring Street and Dexter Avenue will be closed so that sanitary manholes in the intersection can be replaced with new manholes. Detour routes will be signed. Click the map link above to view the Route Detour Map.
This work is expected to be completed by March 22 and the intersection re-opened.
Reconstruction work will also be taking place on the west side of south Grove Avenue between Fulton Street and Prairie Street. This will include new sidewalk and curb and gutter, along with the installation of the new paver field at the northwest corner of Grove Avenue and Prairie Street.
