Last week it was announced that Leavenworth (between Beach and Jefferson) needed to be closed for vehicles travelling north. This was due to work at the Leavenworth/Jefferson intersection that would last about three weeks.   That work has been pushed back and will be performed at another time, most likely in the next two or three weeks. So for now, Leavenworth and that intersection will remain in its current traffic configuration: OPEN.   When the time comes to perform that intersection wor...
In order to get ahead of the forecasted Wednesday rain, work will be performed tomorrow (Saturday, March 16th). The contractor will pour the remaining curb and gutter along the south side of Jefferson Street, mid-block up to Hyde. The work will take place from around 7am to 3pm.   This puts the work ahead of the rain, allowing for plans to demo and pour that sidewalk by Tuesday if all goes well.     (Jefferson south curb this week as contractor demos. It will be poured on Saturday.)
