Underwood and Woodland Avenues Update
We have an important construction update about Underwood and Woodland Avenues.
The storm sewer work on Underwood Avenue is progressing well, and we anticipate that by next week this work will be in the intersection of Warren and Underwood, at which time this intersection will close completely to pedestrian and vehicular traffic for safety reasons.
Also next week, there will also be 1-2 day closures of the intersections of Church & Woodland, Forest & Woodland, and Pleasant & Woodland for water main work.
As you may have seen as the installation has progressed on Underwood, we have a significant hole in order to accommodate the installation of the large storm pipe. As we explained in our recent meeting, when we are digging we cannot know the conditions we will find underground, and therefore our construction dates are estimates. At this time we estimate we could be closing the intersection of Warren and Underwood as early as Tuesday, May 22 or as late as Thursday, May 24. At the time the road closes you can expect it to be closed for 5 business days, plus any associated weekend days. This estimate is weather and condition dependent and may slightly expand or contract.
We are moving the additional crossing guard from Underwood and Warren to Church and Warren to help guide pedestrians and let them know not to continue proceeding eastbound on Warren Avenue during this time.
Thank you for your continued patience as we make these necessary updates to infrastructure and our streets.
