    Streetscape Construction (Bostwick to Barclay)
    Pending Construction


    Tentative Construction Schedule
    October – December 2017

    Design
    The project will:
    • remove the underutilized southern-most lane that was previously bus-only and construct wider sidewalks with trees, planters, and seating. 
    • make the remaining southern-most lane a through and right-turn lane at the hospital driveway and Barclay. 
    • install curb inlets that capture stormwater and drain it to planters filled with trees and other vegetation. This system will process stormwater by retaining, using, and soaking it into the ground to filter pollutants and reduce runoff entering natural bodies of water.
    • upgrade sidewalks to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
    • relocate some light poles.  
    Construction Information 
    Access for People Driving
    Impacts to traffic will be minimal with an eastbound through lane closed and traffic maintained in both directions. Access to the hospital driveway and Bostwick will be maintained. 

    Access for People Walking
    Portions of the sidewalk will be closed to complete this work. People walking should cross the street using the crosswalks at Bostwick and Barclay to avoid these areas. During construction, the sidewalk ramp replacement will be expedited upon removal.

    Construction Hours
    Typical construction hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Occasionally, work may be done on Sunday. Work hours are dependent on weather and the contractor’s schedule.
