Expect delays on Richmond Avenue beginning July 6
Work on the federally funded project identified as Richmond Avenue (Oak Street to State Street) and Harvester Avenue Preventive Maintenance Project is expected to begin on July 6, 2022.
Construction will begin with the replacement of damaged sections of sidewalk on the north side of Richmond Avenue from Oak Street to New York Place then full replacement to State Street, followed by replacement of damaged sections of sidewalks on the south side of Richmond Avenue from Oak Street to Ellicott Avenue.
Sidewalk replacement on Richmond Avenue will be done simultaneously with the milling and paving of Richmond from Oak Street to State Street.
Construction on Harvester Avenue is expected to begin at the end of July.
Traffic delays should be expected; however, no street closures are anticipated at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank the public for their patience.
SIDEWALKS ???? How about fixing the ROAD ????? That is the WORST section of road in the city !!!!
Reading is a skill. "Sidewalk replacement on Richmond Avenue will be done simultaneously with the milling and paving of Richmond from Oak Street to State Street."
Irene, what part of "simultaneously" did you not understand?
The initial press release talked about only sidewalks. It didn't mention road surface repair. The second release included the milling of the roads also. I think this is the miss understanding.
I must have seen only the initial press release as per what Tom Hunt said.. I don't recall anything about the road repair.
