8/24/2015 Greene and Story St
The UPRR has planned upgrades to the Greene Street and Story Street railroad crossings. The benefit is that the transitions at these crossings will be improved. The downside is that the crossings will be closed September 4th through September 9th. The City requested an alternative date later in the year (due to the holiday weekend and proximity to Pufferbilly Days); however, the UPRR has determined these dates to be the best in terms of RR traffic.
The City has been assured that both crossings will open promptly on the 9th of September.
The City apologizes for the inconvenience.
8/20/2015 West Mamie/E-41 Asphalt Overlay
Construction on a joint county/city project to mill and overlay West Mamie Eisenhower/E-41 is set to begin on Monday, August 24. The project begins at Ringold Street and continues west for just over one mile. Work will be performed by OMG Midwest and includes cold in place recycling and a hot mix asphalt overlay. Construction will be staged to allow vehicle access at all times. Daytime access will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car. During overnight hours, the roadway will be opened back up to normal traffic operations.
Construction is expected to take 3 – 4 weeks.
