Green River Group will continue to work between 3rd and 4th Street on Alley D (see below) demolishing existing curbs and pouring new curbs as well as preparing this stretch of road for pavement August 21-24 during the hours of 7:00 am – 6:00 pm. This section of Alley D will be closed to through traffic. Residents who live on this part of the alley will be allowed through to access their apartments as needed. The majority of the students who live in this area have already been provided with alternative parking in the University garage.

Overview

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.
