The road construction phase of the Oakland Boulevard project begins Wednesday, February 3, 2016. Initially, the contractor will be removing trees along the corridor. During the tree removal phase, the contractor will close one block at a time and re-open the street at the end of each day. This will help minimize disruptions to motorists and residents.
Once the tree removal process is complete, the project will begin Phase I, which consists of the full street closure from Highland Avenue to Scott Avenue. During this phase, the contractor will construct storm sewer, catch basin, under drains, curb and gutter, asphalt pavement, sidewalk, and driveways.
After Phase I is complete and open to traffic, the contractor will begin Phase II, which will be from Scott Avenue to Clark Street.
Each closed section of Oakland Boulevard will need to use an alternate route for residents and businesses to access their property, either via alley or side street. A detour will be posted after the tree removal phase redirecting traffic around the project area throughout construction. Your patience and understanding during this development of Oakland Boulevard is greatly appreciated!
