Repaving ahead for North Central

Sandra ClarkInside 640

The city’s North Central Streetscapes project enters another phase of construction as milling and paving of the street will begin Tuesday, April 16, and continue 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily for approximately three weeks, weather permitting.


Crews will tackle resurfacing in two stages, the first being between East Depot Avenue, where the streetscapes project initially began in January 2018, and Bernard Avenue. The second stretch of North Central Street will be milled and paved between Bernard and streetscape project’s terminus at Woodland Avenue.

Both stages will cause temporary lane closures on North Central Street; however, traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times with flaggers on site to provide assistance to drivers. Updated traffic patterns will be indicated by temporary striping applied at the end of each workday.

Prior to the paving, crews will remove old trolley tracks uncovered during the excavation of the new medians in the center of the street. The median areas will include plants and trees to be installed in fall 2019 through a separate landscape contract.
