Remaining improvements on State St.
State St. from 68th to 74th
We are wrapping up project improvements for the 2018 construction season. Before we stop construction in winter, you’ll see us install permanent traffic signals at 68th Street and street lights on Hart Park Lane.
There are temporary street lights along State St. We anticipate our contractor being able to place permanent street lights along the entire stretch of State Street and install traffic signals at 70th and 72nd in April 2019.
Other remaining items for completion in the spring of 2019 include landscaping improvements on the south side of the Harwood pedestrian bridge, permanent pavement markings, permanent signage, and lawn restoration throughout the project.
The City is continuing to work through approvals from the Federal Railroad Administration for the pedestrian crossing of the railroad at 74th St. The railroad company also will be installing the surface material between the tracks in the spring of 2019. For these reasons, the crossing will remain closed throughout the winter.
Thank you for staying updated on construction in the Village. This will be our last scheduled email regarding State Street construction in 2018.
