Pavement and sidewalk construction may be done for 2020, but O Avenue is still a very active construction site. Between 20th Street and 24th Street, work includes new water services, replacing orangeburg sanitary sewer services, and installation of storm sewer. Installation of the box culvert has progressed past 24th Street. Eventually, the box culvert will extend to 30th Street, then north on 30th Street. Utility relocations from 24th Street to Edgewood Road continue, in preparation for future roadway construction.
To ensure a safe worksite and to keep through traffic out of the construction area, road closures have been established at 20th Street and 26th Street. The barricades are staggered to allow residents access to O Avenue and side streets. As work progresses west of 26th Street, closures will also shift west. We encourage everyone to remain alert for workers and moving equipment within closure areas.
As always, you are welcome to contact a member of the project team with any questions or concerns.
