Update on South Park Renovation 12/9/2016

We’re beginning sewer work on Monday, December 12, 2016!

This is a necessary step because the remaining tasks can follow.

We could not start earlier digging due to permit officials thorough review of the traffic impacts to the neighborhood during the holiday moratorium on excavation in this district. We received the permits today. South Park Street (eastbound) will remain open during the utility work and traffic will be diverted around either side of the manhole when work is being performed near Jack London Alley. The alley will be closed between South Park and Varney Street for about one day on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

The plan below shows the parking restrictions that will be implemented during the week of 12/12/16. Because the work will be done in sections, the restricted parking spaces will be released as each portion of construction is completed.
