Washington Avenue will close between Commercial Street and Chase Street for approximately 10 weeks beginning Monday, April 1 for the construction of the Link Washington Avenue Pedestrian Improvement project.
The focus of the Link Washington Avenue Pedestrian Improvement Project is to provide safe pedestrian and bicycle access along this segment of the Link by improving visibility through the pedestrian tunnel of the railroad underpass. The project involves the construction of new retaining walls on the west side of Washington Avenue to widen the sidewalk for a multi-use path between Commercial Street and Chase Street. Improvements will also include new street lighting and upgrades to existing stormwater infrastructure.
Pedestrian access will be maintained through the duration of the project. Drivers are advised to seek an alternate route.
The contractor for the project is Hamilton and Dad, Inc. It will be funded by the 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax Alternative Transportation program and the ¼-cent Capital Improvements Stormwater Improvements program.
