CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES, DURATION, AND TRAFFIC IMPACTS:

Utility work will continue throughout the project along Flynn Avenue, Briggs Street, and Morse Place. Work will include the installation of new sewer lines, water lines, stormwater infrastructure, duct bank, and conduit.


Crews will continue installing sewer line along Flynn Avenue between Foster Street and the railroad tracks working west. Once sewer line is installed, crews will begin installing water line. This work will be completed under a single lane closure with alternating east-west traffic. Work will be restricted to the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Flaggers will be present to assist motorists through the work zone.


Flynn Avenue will reopen to two-way traffic during the evening hours between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m and on weekends. Access to Briggs Street, residential and business driveways will be maintained throughout the work. Businesses will remain open! The remaining utility work will be completed over the next several weeks. For additional information and graphics, click here.


Crews will continue installing sewer line between Lyman Avenue and Home Avenue. Next week, work will focus on the area near Morse Place and Batchelder Street. This work will be completed under single lane closures with alternating traffic. Work will be restricted to the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Flaggers will be present to assist motorists through the work zone. The roadways will reopen to two-way traffic during the evening hours between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Access to residential and business driveways will be maintained throughout the work. Late next week, there is the potential for a single day closure of Morse Place to through traffic at its intersection with Batchelder Street. A traffic alert will be issued next week to notify stakeholders of this closure.


Stormwater infrastructure will be installed along the Champlain Parkway roadway alignment between Sears Lane and Flynn Avenue. This work will be completed off the roadway. Crews will begin prepping the roadway alignment between Sears Lane and Lakeside Avenue for the installation of curb.


Crews will be completing clean up work along Sears Lane. Sears Lane will continue to be closed to thru traffic west of Kaigle‚Äôs Service Center. Emergency vehicle access will remain. The pedestrian crossing between Sears Lane and Harrison Avenue will remain open. Vehicle access to the HULA Lakeside Offsite Parking Lot (HULA parking lot) will now be from Lakeside Avenue only.
