East Broadway work update
With improving weather and holiday roadwork restrictions behind us, traffic controls are being installed in preparation for continuing excavation on Broadway. NU Water Works Manager Clint Hammonds says workers are preparing to complete the last stretch of the project to replace water and wastewater lines. One lane traffic will be implemented to allow construction of the remaining facilities. Plans are to complete the project in three sections, one at a time, from Filbert to Eastport Bridge. The outside northbound lane of Lincoln Avenue, at the Broadway intersection, will be closed and temporary traffic lights will be operational from Filbert to Leo Alley, just past Eastport Exxon. Motorists traveling north on Lincoln Avenue will have to find an alternate route to Broadway. Motorists traveling on Broadway will still be able to turn onto southbound Lincoln Avenue. The existing traffic light at the Lincoln Avenue intersection will be out of service during the construction. Asphalt sawing is beginning today and then work on sewer and water lines from Filbert to Leo Alley will follow. Hammonds says contract crews are scheduled to begin work on assessing sewer manholes in the Northport area next week. On Monday, January 14th. traffic impact will be minimal, but motorists should be aware that work is underway in the area. This project includes Clifton Heights, Cliffwood, North Street, Warford Road, Jimtown Road, Musterfield, Blazer Street, and areas in between.
