– If it’s not already, Market Street is expected to reopen this evening, between Garland and Francis. Work being done on it was part of a project to rehabilitate Market St. from Garland to Francis avenues. The concrete intersection at Queen Ave. and Market St. is being poured and the remaining sidewalks will be poured next week.
– Five Mile Road between Austin and Lincoln is also expected to reopen tonight- but only for a few days. Temporary paving work is being done, and the streets will reopen to traffic. Additional work will be done in the spring of 2010, when the streets will receive a top coat of asphalt and final detail work. On Monday morning, Five Mile will be closed again for paving.
This project widened and rebuilt the street to 44 feet to include curbs and a continuous sidewalk on the west side, a 5-ft. bike lane north and shared-use bike lane south on Five Mile Rd. from Austin to Lincoln roads.
– Holiday traffic flagging starts tomorrow, Friday, at Riverpark Square. Shoppers leaving the River Park Square parking garage may experience longer than normal wait times due to traffic back-ups.
