The Council Street project will be wrapping up next month and, weather permitting, a large portion of the remaining work will be complete next week.

Tentative Schedule:
  • Tuesday, June 1 – Crews begin breaking down existing road surface
  • June 2-3 – Asphalt overlay work 
  • Friday, June 4 – Place new asphalt on east half of Council Street
  • Sunday, June 6 – Complete new asphalt on west half of Council Street

Traffic Impacts:
  • All work will be completed with one lane open each direction
  • To reduce cut-through traffic that negatively impacts local businesses, Council Street will again be closed between Collins Road and 51st Street/Park Place during the pavement/asphalt operations. The traffic control that was installed earlier in the month will again be in place, including signage indicating that all businesses are open and directing traffic to access businesses via Park Place Lane
  • The intersection at Council Street and 51st Street/Park Place will experience alternating closures east and west of the intersection as pavement work is underway. 
  • Council Street will be closed south of the 51st Street/Park Place during this work. 

Safety Notes:
  • The lane restrictions will result in traffic delays
  • We encourage through traffic to use the C Avenue detour, unless they are visiting a business on Council Street
  • Keeping through traffic off Council Street creates a safer and more efficient work environment for the crews

We appreciate your patience as we wrap up this project!
