Second Street Improvements
The first two lifts of paving were completed today on Phase 1 of the 2nd Street improvements. The final paving for the entire roadway will be completed in early 2018 when construction on Block 137 is completed. Traffic loops are scheduled to be installed in the new roadway tomorrow. If all goes as planned, Phase 2 will begin on Wednesday (9/27), which will include demolition of the small half road section on 2nd Street next to Washington Federal Bank. There will also be a new traffic control plan; access to the A Street Station parking lot will be from Evergreen Road.
Phase 2 asphalt work is anticipated to be completed by Friday (10/6), subject to weather conditions and availability of asphalt.
Work associated with the reconstruction of 2nd Street is progressing faster than anticipated.
2nd Street is anticipated to be closed between 9/6 – 9/27. Demolition of 2nd Street will begin on September 6 (Wednesday) which will require the closure of 2nd Street between Evergreen Road and the south side of the “A” Street Station driveway (Washington Federal Bank, Glance, Windermere, Tucci’s). Access to the parking lot will be maintained from A Avenue.
Paving is scheduled for the week of September 25 and the roadway will be opened shortly afterwards.
Additionally, starting the week of September 5, crews will be working on reconstructing the ADA ramps and art pad in the northwest corner of 2nd Street and Evergreen Road.
Crews have poured the new concrete curb and driveway approach to the parking structure on the east side of 2nd Street. Progress is also being made on the stormwater connection at the intersection of 2nd Street and Evergreen Road.
Between 9/1 - 9/8, crews will be trenching for utilities across the north end of 2nd Street between 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Work will be intermittent and flaggers will be on site to direct traffic when work is occurring.
