SUBSCRIBE FOR PROJECT NEWSLETTERS

Project Phase: Construction
Construction Start: March 2024


Construction Update: June 14, 2024

35th Street is really starting to transform. The roadway paving is complete in Stage 1A, and the majority of the driveways are also complete. 

Upcoming Work (Next Two Weeks, Weather Permitting)

  • The contractor will continue to work on driveways and new sidewalks in this stage in the coming weeks. If the weather stays cool and dry, they may place sod. 
  • They will also continue installing the sanitary sewer east of Eastern Avenue, followed by paving in Stage 1B.

Traffic Impacts

  • 35th Street is closed to through traffic for the duration of the project.
  • Access will be maintained to residents within each stage for as long as possible during utility work.
  • Full closures at each stage are required for the roadway work.

Thank you for your patience.
