College Ave./Bellaire Blvd. Improvement Project Update
The traffic control plan for construction related to the Bellaire Boulevard/College Avenue/Poor Farm Ditch drainage project is not expected to change in the coming week.
The northern lanes of Bellaire Boulevard from Weslayan Street west to the West U. city limit have been reopened. In addition, demolition and repaving of the northern lanes of Bellaire Boulevard between Auden Street and Edloe Street are in process. The placement of storm water boxes continues northbound on College Avenue, and has progressed from Riley Street to a point midway between Villanova Street and Oberlin Street. The contractor has poured concrete on College Avenue from Riley Street to north of Southwestern Street with an anticipated pour next week taking the paving from Riley Street to the intersection with Villanova Street, weather permitting. Northbound traffic on College Avenue is detoured between Villanova Street and Case Street. As construction proceeds north, this traffic control will also move consistent with the construction zone.
A construction zone is established on College Avenue with periods of “one way” and “controlled access.”
The revised tentative schedule (subject to change) is as follows:
College Ave. from Riley Street to University Blvd. – April 2009 to August 2009
