During recent water and sewer upgrades at the access ramp between 8th Street and Idylwyld Drive, a nearby storm line that needs maintenance work was identified.
To avoid cuts to the new road surface, storm line work will be completed prior to scheduled paving. The ramp will now open on Tuesday morning. Also, Central Avenue between Attridge Drive and Reid Road will be resurfaced this weekend. The work will entail a full closure of this stretch of roadway and detour signage will be posted to reroute traffic. Eastbound Attridge Drive around the intersection of Attridge Drive and Central Avenue will also be periodically restricted to one through lane. Weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances, the section of Central Avenue between Reid Road and 115th Street East will be resurfaced next weekend. This phase of work will also entail a full closure of the construction area. The work will be limited to daytime hours due to the roadway's proximity to residences. Heavy equipment will be at work and some noise and vibration can be expected. Sidewalks will remain open throughout the construction work. Detour signage will be in place directing motorists to alternate routes and access points. Motorists are asked to respect workers, detours, signs and barriers, while expecting delays and allowing extra time if you ll be using this route while construction is underway.
