This week forms were constructed for the first half of the block from Leavenworth to Hyde and next week crews will pour each band to make headway on the final part of the new roadway!


Later in the week, crews will put in place forms for the second half of the block up to Hyde and hopefully have that poured early that week of May 6th.


This week the Water Department continued water line installations between Leavenworth and Hyde.


Crews poured concrete at the west half of the Jones and Jefferson Street intersection and you see that the curb ramps are put in there at the southwest corner.


Great progress has been made at the Leavenworth intersection as well. And the bulb-out at the Hyde southeast corner of the Hyde intersection is complete.


Next week, traffic should flip to the south side of Jefferson for the first block (Jones to Leavenworth), westbound, one lane only still.


Traffic will merge into the northern lane at Leavenworth until the concrete roadway Leavenworth to Hyde has cured.


Work will continue at the intersections, and soon the contractor can concentrate on demo work and the building of the north sidewalk! More details on that work coming soon.


Thanks for everyone's patience and tolerance of construction as this beautiful project is being built. We look forward to celebrating the opening of this new public space.


****Community Meeting: Please NOTE that the bi-weekly construction meeting for from last week has been RESCHEDULED for Monday, April 29, 10AM at the FWCBD Office.
