City details Prospect Ave. upgrade work


From Wednesday, June 26, to Monday, July 1, drivers will not be able to access Prospect Avenue from Wallace Street to South 14th Street. Residents will be asked to park on side streets and alleys.

Emergency personnel are aware of the construction and will be onsite daily so they are aware of emergency routes, Craft said.

Monday, July 1, to Wednesday, July 3, crews will complete fly ash stabilization, which will temporarily restrict residents’ access to their homes as the construction moves along the street. Craft explained it will be a very dusty process, but once complete, residents will have a hard driving surface. As long as the weather cooperates, the roads will be open to local traffic at the end of the day July 3.

A couple of residents told Craft they were concerned with accessing their vehicles due to health conditions. Craft told them the city would maintain close communication with residents who have accessibility issues in order not to inconvenience them.

“If anyone at all is disabled, cannot make it to the parked car, cannot physically have the ability to park their car a half block or a block away then I need to make some special accommodations,” Craft said.

Construction will continue through September. Throughout the remainder of the project, residents will have their garbage picked up at 6 a.m. on Monday.

The $625,000 project is being funded through local option sales tax as part of the city’s pavement management program. It was originally slated for fall of 2009, but was halted when residents petitioned the city not to complete it. At the time, the cost for reconstruction was pegged at $1.7 million.
