Drainage Project Construction Zone Update
The northern lanes of Bellaire Blvd. from Weslayan Street west to West U. city limits have been reopened. Demolition and repaving of the northern lanes of Bellaire Blvd. between Auden Street and Edloe Street are in process, with a portion of the two most northern lanes already poured and the final pour of the section from Stella Link east to Auden Street scheduled for the coming week. It is anticipated that adequate pavement will be poured and cured to bring all westbound traffic back to the northern lanes to a point east of the Stella Link retail area by sometime in June. The contractor has completed the paving of the intersection of Bellaire Blvd. and Stella Link. He anticipates reopening this intersection completely early next week, which will cause traffic patterns to change.
The placement of storm water boxes continues northbound on College Avenue, and has progressed from Riley Street to a point south of the intersection with Swarthmore Street. The contractor has poured concrete on College Avenue from Riley Street to a point between the intersections of Oberlin and Byron Streets. Northbound traffic on College Avenue is detoured between Villanova Street and Byron Street. As construction proceeds north, this traffic control will also move consistent with the construction zone.
The revised tentative schedule (subject to change) is as follows:
College Avenue from Riley Street to University Boulevard – April 2009 to August 2009
