First and Second streets between Avenue C and University Place will
be reduced to single lanes on Monday as the first phase of a year long
reconstruction of U.S. 70 begins.
More than 2 miles of the highway
will be under rennovation until August 2013, according to project
manager John Guldemann of Constructors inc.
Guldemann said work will include concrete paving, new side walks, curbs and gutters, new lighting, irrigation and landscaping.
The project will be split in three phases:
• Phase 1 — First and Second streets between University Place and Avenue C. Duration: 140 days
• Phase 2 — First and second streets between Avenue C and Boston Avenue. Duration: 80 days
• Phase 3 —
About three and a half blocks of Second Street north of Boston Avenue;
Avenue C between first and second streets and U.S. 70 between Avenue K
and the Super 8 Motel. Duration: 70 days.
