Beginning Thursday, August 29, 2019 the contractor will begin the reconstruction of the Walnut Street box culvert and roadway. In order for the contractor to begin pavement removal, a full road closure will be required. The road closure will be in effect through November, depending on the weather. With impending winter weather, the contractor will be required to provide temporary driveway access. Below you will find a map with the closure area highlighted.
For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work.
During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area on Walnut Street. Residents can place their collection carts on the open portions of Walnut Street, 21st Street, or 20th Street during this street closure. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street.
Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open.
If you have any questions or concerns during the course of construction you may contact me by phone, fax or e-mail as listed below.
