UPDATE ON CENTRAL PROJECT:
The Contractor is on schedule to complete the Central Avenue project from 127th Street to 135th Street by September 6th. In summary, drainage work, repairs to the bridge, and asphalt surface removal items were completed, placement of the hot mix asphalt binder course began Tuesday, August 26, 2013 and the bridge’s waterproofing membrane on Wednesday. Hot mix asphalt surface course will follow to complete the pavement for striping and then the roadway will be open to the full traffic configuration again by Sept. 6th. Reaming work beyond that date includes landscaping which is allowed beyond Sept. 6th and should be completed in 3-4 weeks, which should not impact any traffic.
Thank You for your cooperation and patience during this time. We all look forward to the finished project.
