Infrastructure upgrades on Plum and Shields Streets and City Park Avenue are planned in coordination with The District at Campus West development. Construction for the sanitary and storm drainage system replacement phase of this project will begin Monday, March 17 and continue through June.
Plum Street will be closed starting March 17 with local access to all businesses and residential properties. Construction typically will occur on weekdays, 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m., with possible weekend and night work.
The stormwater improvements will increase capacity and upgrade the system, improving drainage and decreasing the risks for flooding in these areas.
Extensive traffic control and detours for pedestrians, bike riders and drivers on Shields and Plum Streets and City Park Avenue will occur, including:
Safety for residents, commuters, bike riders, pedestrians, and work crews is a priority. Barricades and fences will be used to clearly mark areas of excavation that will be fenced off at night and on weekends. For your safety, please stay away from these areas and follow all detours.
