Next Phase Begins Week of 4/23

 

The work on Devon Avenue is progressing toward Central Avenue.  The crew will be crossing into the Devon and Central intersection on Wednesday, April 18th, weather permitting. 

During this work, left hand turn movements for North and South bound Central will be restricted and there will be no through traffic across Devon by vehicles.  Eastbound and westbound Devon will remain in the current 1 and 1 configuration that it is in now.  
It is estimated that this work will take 4 weeks to complete, which includes base to grade restoration of the roadway. 
It is their intention to have the intersections at Spokane and at Minnehaha opened by this date.  The attached letter will be distributed to the stakeholders by the end of the week.

Progress + Traffic Restrictions

The crew is approaching the completion of the pit used for tunneling underneath the railroad between Kinzua Ave. and Lehigh Ave..  Excavation for the receiving pit used to retrieve the tunnel boring machine, will begin later this week.  The current traffic pattern between Central Ave. and Kinzua Ave., with one-lane in each direction, will be extended to Caldwell Ave. on Thursday, June 7th.  This will restrict through traffic at Lehigh Ave. and the turning movements to RIGHT TURN ONLY.
