With the placement of surface asphalt on Washington and Glenview Roads last week, the reconstruction of Washington Road is complete minus a few small tasks. A small amount of concrete sidewalk remains, as well as landscaping, but that will all be done before winter is upon us. Check out the pictures below of the project after asphalt was completed.
Two small islands are going to be added to Lehigh next year. In order to make room for these, Lehigh needs to be widened a little bit at the north end (up towards Spruce). This work includes removing the existing curb and installing new curb with asphalt in the widened road area. This work will begin tomorrow. The remainder of the Lehigh reconstruction will take place next year, as well as turning Prairie, which is now a through street from Washington to Lehigh, into a cul-de-sac which will be accessible from Washington.
