Road construction on Oxford Street from McMillan Street to Humiston Avenue will begin the week of May 15. Traffic control setup will begin a week in advance -- the week of May 8.
The project will be completed in two phases, and construction will continue through fall.
Phase one includes the reconstruction of the center median, left-turn lanes and inside thru lanes. Lighting and storm sewer will be completed as part of this phase. Traffic will be maintained on the outer lanes with access to businesses.
Phase two is expected to begin late July and includes the reconstruction of the outside thru lane and sidewalks. Storm sewer and turf establishment will be completed as part of this phase. Traffic will be maintained on the inside lanes.
Efforts will be made to accommodate vehicle traffic to businesses as practically as possible during construction operations.
Maximum vehicle widths of 10 feet will be in place for construction. It's recommended that motorists utilize alternative routes for the duration of construction.
Concrete sawing will be taking place at night only during concrete paving operations. The contractor will be sawing joints in the sections of concrete that are paved that day. Sawing will be temporarily in front of businesses or homes.
