Beverly Avenue Project

Beverly Ave Project - Phase 3A

Project Update - March 19, 2019

MUB is planning to begin construction on Sunnyside Phase III improvements this Thursday, March 21. They will begin construction on the storm sewer connection at 6th Street and Grant Ave. It is anticipated that they will have 6th Street closed between Beverly Avenue & Grant Avenue while this work is performed. The road will be closed from approximately 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

MUB will then plan to begin work on water, sewer and storm repairs on Beverly Alley, between 3rd Street and 4th Street starting Monday, March 25. The Alley will be closed between 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. They will work with local traffic to allow for access into the garages and parking spots. This work should not affect any on-street parking.

We will provide additional updates when available. Please check back often for updates or sign up for our alert notifications on the top right of this page.


Beginning March 11, construction will begin on Beverly Avenue and Beverly Alleyway. The expected substantial completion date for this phase of the project is August 9. These dates are dependent on weather and unforseen conditions. As the construction begins, we will try to reduce the impact to residents in the area; however, parking and traffic will be affected. We will update this page frequently with project information including parking and road closures. You can also sign-up by clicking the Beverly Ave Project Alerts title on the right to receive text and email notifications about upcoming parking restrictions, traffic restrictions (i.e. possible changes to one-direction traffic), pedestrian detours and full road closures.

This construction project includes Beverly Avenue, 4th Street, Beverly Alleyway, and the 5th Street Right-of-way between 3rd Street and 6th Street. This streetscape project includes widening and repaving of the roadway, stormwater upgrades, sidewalks and ADA curb ramps, lighting, retaining walls, and dumpster enclosures.
