Construction to Resume on 1st Avenue


Construction on 1st Avenue from 6th Street to 9th Street will start again on Monday, April 1. 

The initial focus will be on completing the permanent left turn lanes and medians on 1st Avenue at the 6th Street intersection.  This will reduce northbound and southbound 1st Avenue approaching 6th Street to one through lane and one left turn lane.  This lane reduction will be in place until late April.  Additional street and sidewalk paving north of 6th Street will also require lane closures, but efforts will be made to minimize their duration.

Reminders for drivers:

  • Take it slow through the project corridor.
  • Help other drivers merge into your lane.
  • Help other drivers enter or exit business driveways, when safe to do so.
  • Please keep an eye out for pedestrians, bicyclists, and construction workers.
  • If possible, adjust your schedule to avoid the morning and late afternoon rush hours.

The 1st Avenue project should be complete by the end of May.
