     The following is helpful information in regards to the road construction on Porter Avenue: 

    -The project includes both the roadway and sidewalks.  Existing sidewalks may be repaired and/or improved and new segments of sidewalk will be created.

    -The contractor, Lane Construction, will be removing the existing asphalt pavement and replacing the roadway with a rock base.  This will be the road condition throughout the project – estimated at 90 days.

    -There will be ongoing stormwater drainage and other utility upgrades taking place throughout the project.

    -Always anticipate active construction on Porter Avenue between Williams Street east to Martin Avenue.  Road conditions will change daily as work progresses over the next few months.

    Pedestrians, cyclists should be alert to change in changes in grades and materials for both the roadway and the sidewalk.  Ongoing work could create a sudden change in elevation until complete.

     

    We thank you for your patience in this matter.
