Closures on Walnut Street are scheduled next week as work on the current phase of the Linden Street Renovation Project wraps up.

Beginning Monday, May 24, the intersection of Walnut and Linden streets will close daily from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the installation of lights above the intersection. The intersection will be open to traffic outside of working hours.

Also on Monday, Walnut Street will undergo a full closure from Linden Street east to the alley behind The Elizabeth Hotel. This closure will allow for final concrete work, pavement repairs, and landscaping work in the area.

Both closures will end Thursday, May 27, weather permitting.

Businesses on Linden Street, Walnut Street, and Old Firehouse Alley are open and will continue to have access at all times.

Patrons can also access businesses in the area by parking in the Firehouse Alley Parking Structure, a short walk from Linden and Walnut Streets.

This work is part of the Linden Street Renovation Project. Construction performed this spring will substantially reduce impacts when the rest of the Linden Street Renovation project is completed at a later date.
