This will take up to 7 days, and then the lights will be fully functional.

Project Engineer Joe Kubala is arranging for temporary measures to allow for 2-lane traffic beginning Friday evening and continuing through Sunday. Additionally, flaggers will be onsite to mitigate cross-traffic access on Saturday.

Railroad Avenue Water Transmission Line Installation
Railroad Ave will have intermittent closures until June 24, 2016, as new water transmission lines are installed. These closures will follow the immediate work area and not cover the entire length of the block. Access will be limited from each side during this period. The contractor will maintain access for water bulk station, however, may require alternate access directions, depending on location. The work will occur from 5th Avenue to 4th Avenue. Underground water installation should be completed and operational by June 17, remaining work will be surface paving and clean up.
The new lines will help equalize water pressure around Town.

RETREET will be leading a tree planting project in Lyons on Sunday, June 5th. The materials for the planting will be delivered on Thursday, June 2nd and temporarily staged in the Confluence Neighborhood. The mulch and the trees will be stored on the lot at 341 Park St (Stacy property) until the end of the day Thursday (6/2/16). This lot will serve as the distribution hub as the materials are dispersed throughout town, to those who are participating in the tree plantings. Distribution of the materials will only involve a few pick-up trucks and will likely take just a couple of hours. Impact to the neighborhood will be minimal.
