The Contractor started their Christmas break today….which means you get a break also. The crew will return on January 2, 2018.
This is from Tim, the Inspector…“Be advised that the EARS project is shut down for the holidays. We will return on Jan 2. East Ave is now open from fourth south to and including Pronesti lane. There is no pass through traffic possible between Pronesti lane and Fifth St. There has been provisions made for residents in this zone. The Sunoco station now has access to all three of its driveways. There are some traffic barricades in the SE corner of fourth and East Ave around a pile of cold patch and the riser pipe for future work. Street dept, was on site today and there is a plan in place for snow and ice control during the construction shut down. The by-pass pump has been shut down and the old sewer has been temporarily connected to the 72″ pipe.”
Snow removal plan
Since East Avenue is not a through street currently, it will be treated like a residential street. Street Department has been advised by Tim for plowing over the holiday break.
Over the holidays, all three driveways to the gas station will be open. East Avenue will be accessible from Pronesti (going north) as well as 4th Street (to Pronesti). East Avenue is closed between Pronesti & 5th Street…No Vehicles can pass this point.
Tim Gallagher did want me to extend a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Everyone from him!!
I also want to say Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! … And “THANK YOU” for your patience as we work through this project!
And as Always…Please Drive Safely!!!
