Spring 2021 Construction on Lincoln Avenue

The week of May 17, the contractor substantially completed the concrete work on the west side of Lincoln Avenue and began placing new roadway bollards and pedestrian lights. These lights are expected to be turned on in the coming days. The week of May 24, construction activities will shift to the east side of Lincoln Avenue, beginning with the removal of existing curb and sidewalks.  

The contractor also completed the brick paver installation at the smaller bump outs and at the northwest corner of Elm and Lincoln. This work was completed utilizing recycled bricks saved from the west side of Lincoln Avenue.

 All the public sidewalks and entrances to businesses remain accessible during construction. Also, street parking in front of the business on the east side of Lincoln Avenue is accessible. Businesses remain open and accessible during construction.
