11/8/2021 Update:

The majority of the work on this project is now complete, and W. Washington Ave. has been reopened to traffic.  Crews continue to work on some of the final landscape restoration, installing signs, and completing the wiring and permanent traffic signal installation.  The temporary signals will remain in place, until the permanent ones are fully operational.

Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to resurface the street and replace utilities on West Washington Ave between Bedford Street and Broom Street. Proposed work includes removal and replacement of asphalt pavement, replacement of water main, sanitary sewer main and laterals, storm sewer and private storm sewer connections, installation of pedestrian street lighting, and replacement of curb and gutter, drive aprons, and sidewalk as needed. Crews will also install a protected intersection for pedestrians and bicyclists at the intersection of W Washington Avenue and Bassett Street. Crews will also install a parking protected bike lane on South Bassett Street between West Washington Avenue and West Main Street.
