During Phase 1, all traffic on Stimson Avenue, between the roundabout and East State Street, will be restricted to one lane westbound (towards uptown), and eastbound traffic will be detoured to East State Street.  Pedestrian traffic will be maintained on the south side of Stimson Avenue. 

The Contractor will also begin work next week installing a waterline on Grant Street, between Stimson Avenue and Morris Avenue.  Grant Street will be closed at the Stimson Avenue and Morris Avenue intersection March 1 – March 4, 2021. 

The Stimson Avenue Improvements Project includes City-owned utility replacements (water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer), installation of decorative lighting, upgrading existing traffic signals, replacing curb and sidewalks, installing higher visibility crosswalks, and replacing the existing roadway.
