Activities this week will include:

  • Continue sidewalk restoration on Valley Street between Ninth Avenue North and Fairview Avenue North.

Reminder: Crews reopened Valley Street, Ninth Avenue North and Broad Street to traffic on Friday, September 20. These re-openings mark the end of major roadway closures associated with the East Phase of the Mercer Corridor Project. Travelers can expect intermittent lane closures and pedestrian detours along Valley Street as sidewalk and landscaping work wraps-up through fall 2013.

Traffic engineers will continue to:

  • Monitor traffic on Mercer Street, Fifth Avenue North, Broad Street and Ninth Avenue North.
  • Monitor traffic at the Westlake Avenue North and Mercer Street intersection.
  • Monitor traffic at the Ninth Avenue North and Mercer Street intersection.
  • Monitor traffic flow at the Dexter Avenue North and Mercer Street intersection.
