Infrastructure Repair Work

This week, Streets Division staff repaired approximately 1,640 square feet of failed pavement on East Clinton Avenue, at its intersection with North 5th Street.  This work required approximately 42 cubic yards of concrete and 60 hours of labor.   Additionally, in advance of the May 17 two-way conversion, crews installed 40 traffic signs and removed the four brick-columned planters around the Square.  Lastly, street sweeping operations continued resulting in more than 48 miles of roadway being cleaned. Thank you to the crews for their hard work!
