PAVING FOR PROGRESS
Northwood Drive Improvements        


Construction Update: 3-17-17
 

Work has recently started on Northwood Drive NE, which will stretch from Brookland Dr and move north to 42nd Street. 

Right now, the contractor is working on pavement as well as water main improvements. Road closures are anticipated. In the next one to two weeks, driveways will be temporarily blocked as work takes place in front of homes. Our contractor will work to limit these times as much as possible. 

While the road is currently closed to thru traffic (access reserved only for those who live on the street), we have received reports of other drivers using Northwood Dr. to access 42nd Street. We have reached out to neighboring schools and businesses on 42nd Street to encourage their traffic to find alternate routes and avoid the work site on Northwood Drive. It is our hope this reduces the number of vehicles in the work zone, and help crews move more efficiently and safely. 

Additional updates will be ongoing as the project continues. 

Thank you for your patience as we work on road improvements!
