Road Closure Alert: Sections of Sterling Avenue between 3rd and 6th Streets for three weeks starting February 28

Please advised that starting on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 sections of Sterling Avenue between 3rd Street and 6th Street will be closed for approximately three weeks. The closures will only take place between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on each work day.

The closures are necessary to facilitate construction of 24-inch water line in this area. Due to the location of the new line within the street, it was determined that it would not be safe to allow traffic to travel on Sterling Avenue during construction.   

To minimize impact on traffic, construction/closures are scheduled in three phases as follows:

  • Phase I – Sterling Avenue between 3rd Street and 5th Street – from Wednesday, February, 28, 2018 through Wednesday, March 7, 2018

  • Phase II – Sterling Avenue between 5th Street and 6th Street – from Thursday, March 8, 2018 through Thursday, March 15, 2018

  • Phase III – Sterling Avenue at the intersection of 6th Street – from Friday, March 16, 2018 through Friday, March 23, 2018

Please keep in mind that the dates of the phases may vary depending on work progress, however, the phases will not overlap. The contractor is required to complete one phase before starting the next one.

This is part of a 10 month project that will continue into the City of Highland’s jurisdiction after this section is completed.

The contractor will provide all traffic control and detours during the construction operation.

Access to local properties will be maintained at all times.
