2018 Roadway Program - East Lawn Avenue Pavement Removal Start Date - Confirmation of Start Date

The contractor has confirmed that pavement removals will start on August 30, 2018, weather permitting. The contractor will be starting at Lawn and Elm and continue moving north. Once construction begins, Lawn Avenue will temporarily become a one-way street, southbound during and outside of construction hours. 

Residential Impacts

Residents who reside on the east side of Lawn Avenue should have their vehicles out of their driveway by 7:30 AM on Friday morning. Driveways will be inaccessible until the east lane has been completely removed and replaced. Vehicles can be parked on Elm St. or on Lawn Avenue, south of the Elm St. The Police Department has been notified and overnight parking will be available until your driveways are accessible. Residents on the west side of Lawn Avenue will have access to their driveway during this phase of the project. Please be aware that heavy vehicles and construction personnel will on-site during construction hours. You may be delayed when entering or exiting the west driveways until equipment can be moved. On street parking will be unavailable on Lawn Avenue (Burlington-Elm) until the project is complete.

Business Impacts

On street parking will be unavailable on Lawn Avenue (Burlington-Elm) until the project is complete. The contractor is scheduled to open the east and west alley temporary delivery truck routes on Monday as well. The removal of the knee wall, in the east alley, will occur first thing tomorrow morning. Access to the alley will remain available from Lawn Avenue until the knee wall is removed and the temporary access route is available. Signage will be placed on Wolf Rd. and Grand Ave. labeling the temporary entrances for delivery truck parking. Additional signage will be at the same locations describing the temporary traffic pattern in the BMO Harris and Heartland Bank parking lots. Please see the two maps referenced below outlining the temporary access routes for both alleys. Please be aware that the parking spaces referenced for closure in each map will be unavailable for use tomorrow morning. Sidewalk access will remain available during the pavement removal portion of the project. The contractor will be leaving a ~4 foot wide public sidewalk on the east side of Lawn Avenue for pedestrians to continue using while the pavement is being removed and replaced.
