Motorists should use alternate routes when possible. No pedestrians are allowed in construction work areas for safety reasons. Slow for the cone zone!

 

24th Street Improvement Project

June 27 - July 2, 2015

The consultant for the 24th Street Improvement Project will continue potholing for utilities within the right-of-way on 23rd and 24th Streets  through July. The work entails drilling a small hole and using pressurized air and a high-pressure vacuum to remove the soil and determine the location of utility lines. The surface is restored once the operation is complete.

The operation is expected to be underway week days, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. It will take about a month to complete the entire corridor. 

Crews plan to begin operations at D and 23rd Streets and work east to M Street before moving to locations on 24th Street. Work will also occur on side streets adjacent to 23rd and 24th Streets. Traffic control will be in place as needed.
