Construction Update- South Aurora Street Sidewalk Extension

PROJECT NAME: South Aurora St. Sidewalk Extension  

PROJECT START DATE: Monday, June 17, 2019
PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND GOAL: New sidewalks will be constructed along South Aurora Street between Hillview Pl. and Grandview Ave.  South Aurora Street will be closed between June 17- Aug 30, 2019.  Work has already begun and the road closure will begin on Monday, June 17 and will require closure of the street 24 / 7.  A road closure traffic detour using Hudson Street will be concurrent with the closure.  Motorists should expect delays or find alternate routes.
LOCAL IMPACTS: South Aurora St. will be closed, except for local traffic, at all times beginning June 17.  Local traffic includes: residents that live within the road closure and South Hill Elementary School students/parents/staff during school hours.  Residents may enter the road closure from the south side (Grandview Ave), proceed to their residence, and leave on the north side (Hillview Pl.) side of the closure.  Emergency Responders will have 24/7 access.  Pedestrians, bikers, and vehicular traffic should expect some minor delays.  

PLEASE NOTE: Construction, by nature, is subject to constant change, inclement weather, and unexpected findings.
