The Contractor is working this week on finishing the concrete roadway, installing bricks in the splitter islands, installing sidewalks, installing signage, and completing temporary pavement markings. Stimson Avenue is scheduled to open by 3 pm Friday, July 21, 2017. 

The Contractor will have additional work to complete on Stimson Avenue after the street is opened, including setting the light poles, grinding the concrete roadway, installing permanent pavement markings, and landscaping. There will be intermittent traffic control to complete the work scheduled on Stimson, but eastbound and westbound traffic will be maintained.

Work on the McKinley Avenue access road will continue throughout July and is expected to open in mid-August.
