Press release:

Preparations for the Washington Avenue Sewer Project are under way and the work will start Monday, May 16th.

It is expected that Washington Avenue will be limited to "local traffic only" in the specific section between Bank Street and Summit Street. During this time, thru traffic will not be allowed, only access for residents/deliveries/emergency services.

It is expected that sidewalks will always be open and passable, but caution should be observed as it is a construction zone.

Press release:

The Washington Avenue Sewer Project is expected to impact traffic in that area and will start on or about May 2. Once construction begins, Washington Avenue will be limited to “local traffic only” in the specific section of Washington Avenue that is being worked on. The expectation is that the first section to be closed off would be Bank Street to Summit Street, followed by Summit Street to Ross Street.

During this time, thru traffic will not be allowed, only access for residents/deliveries/emergency services. It is expected that sidewalks will always be open and passable, but caution should be observed as it is a construction zone.

Once completed, construction will then shift to the Jefferson Avenue – Bank Street block of Washington Avenue. An additional notice will be provided for work on State Street which is also part of this project.

Work is expected to be completed on the entire project, including pavement resurfacing from Ellicott Avenue to Ross Street, by Aug. 19.

Construction updates, schedules and traffic plans will be posted on the City Web page, and should be available by the end of the week. You can access it here.
