Barstow St.& Riverfront St. Improvements

Project Update: September 25, 2020(Final Update)

The contractor this week completed all of the remaining traffic signal work for the Phase 2 project and activated the signals at the Barstow/South/West Broadway and Barstow/Wisconsin intersections.  The brick subcontractor placed and cut all the remaining bricks down to Wisconsin Avenue, and the permanent signing was installed around the Phase 2 limits.  The contractor also began sweeping the project limits in preparation for the Phase 2 limits to be re-opened to traffic.


Beginning late this afternoon, once work is completed for the day, the contractor will be sliding the traffic control barricades to the side/terrace areas, and re-opening Barstow St. from Wisconsin Avenue to W. Main St.  The traffic control subcontractor will be arriving on-site late tonight to begin removing all traffic control devices around the project.


Over the next couple of weeks, minor project activities will continue as punch list items are wrapped up through both the Phase 1 and Phase 2 limits of the project.


Traffic Control/Access

Beginning mid-late this afternoon, Barstow St. will be re-opened to traffic from Wisconsin Avenue to W. Main St.


Municipal Lot #5 has been re-opened to vehicle access and parking.


This will be my final update for this project.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the project, please feel free to contact me.
