Avenue A Park Pedestrian Bridge is Being Replaced Dondlinger Construction will begin removal and replacement of the existing pedestrian bridge located in Avenue A Park. The construction will close sidewalks in and around Avenue A Park, and will also close adjacent parking areas along Avenue A, and Washington St. when work is being done. The project is expected to be completed in about 1 month.
27th and Main Intersection Is Closed The intersection of 27th Avenue and Main Street will be closed to all traffic West of Main on 27th Avenue for waterline construction beginning Thursday, October 8th. The closure is expected to last approximately one week.
During this time, traffic on Main Street will be shifted and restricted to one lane in each direction. The signal at 27th and Main will not be operational, and temporary stop signs will be in place for the intersection control. The lane shift, and restricted traffic will continue for several weeks after the waterline installation in order to complete other utility work near the intersection.
