With the exception of corners and improved lighting, the scope of project improvements is limited to the roadway from curb to curb.
Will Access to Businesses or Residences be obstructed?
Access will be maintained to all Businesses and Residences at all times throughout construction. The sidewalks midblock will not be replaced so the sidewalks will remain open behind work zones.
