Isaacs Avenue construction week-ahead update for Nov. 20
As this portion of the project is wrapping up, here is your final Isaacs Avenue construction week-ahead update for 2019:
Weather permitting (and, knock on wood, the forecast looks pretty good), temporary striping will be put down on Thursday, Nov. 21. Crews also will lay asphalt at a few remaining driveways and parking lots tomorrow. On Friday, the contractor will remove all traffic control other than a single barricade each at Division and Roosevelt, and work on the roadway will be complete for the year.
Landscaping in the stormwater swale at Division, as well as landscape restoration work, could continue at least until Thanksgiving. This should have minimal impact on traffic through the corridor.
New traffic signals, including stoplight equipment at the Roosevelt intersection, a school zone flasher/radar, and several streetlights, should be installed in late January/early February 2020. Until then, the Roosevelt intersection will continue to operate as a four-way stop. City engineers are looking into the possibility of placing temporary lighting at this intersection until the permanent signal and lighting are installed.
As we stated last week, we know this project has put a strain on the merchants, residents, and commuters who depend on this stretch of Isaacs for their livelihood and travel. We greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation, and we look forward to traversing the upgraded roadway, bike lanes, and sidewalks for many years. 🚗🚴♀️🏃🏿🦼
