Grant Avenue to close to one-way southbound only traffic between Sunshine and University beginning Dec. 4
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Grant Avenue will close to one-way southbound traffic only between Sunshine and University streets beginning Monday, Dec. 4 for construction related to the Grant Avenue Parkway corridor improvement project. The roadway is expected to remain one-way in this segment of the Parkway route for approximately three months (weather permitting).
“We have completed acquisition of necessary right-of-way easements in this remaining southern segment of the Grant Avenue Parkway route, allowing our contractor crews to jump down and quickly construct GAP utility, roadway and pedestrian improvements,” explains Project Manager Leree Reese. “Upon completion of this segment, the final asphalt pavement can then be applied in all of section two of the Parkway Route, from Sunshine to Ildereen.”
Final asphalt application is expected to take place in the springtime when temperatures are more suited to asphalt application. Landscaping and tree planting along completed portions of the Grant Avenue Parkway is anticipated in spring or summer.
Northbound traffic between Sunshine and University is advised to follow the posted detour generally using Campbell Avenue.
