Albion Avenue Reconstruction

The street was opened to two-way traffic over the Thanksgiving weekend. The west side curb and gutter was not able to be installed due to the change in weather. This area has been barricaded to keep traffic away from the low shoulder that will be there for the rest of the winter. Construction speed limits are still in place due to the road not having curb and gutter on the west side. Temporary driveways have been constructed at all driveway locations. The remainder of the work will be completed in the Spring beginning as soon as the weather allows. Below is the December newsletter for this project. Thanks to everyone that has been impacted by this project for their understanding and continued patience with this important project.

Albion Avenue Reconstruction

The paving contractor worked through the weekend to get the southbound lanes poured ahead of the cold weather this week. With the weather turning poor, the progress of the project is being evaluated and will likely not get completed this fall. We will be coordinating with the general contractor on when to open up the project for two-way traffic and working to provide driveway access for the residents and businesses through the winter. A further update will be provided when those specifics are determined.

Albion Avenue Reconstruction

Expect delays as paving of Albion Avenue between Lair Raid and Oak Beach Drive is scheduled for Friday, September 26th. Paving operations will be restricting traffic flow for most of the day and into the evening hours. These operations will cause significant delays so the public is encouraged to find an alternate route this day. Southbound traffic will still be able to access residences and businesses, but delays are anticipated, so please plan ahead. The southbound only traffic and business access will resume on Monday with the same restrictions as the past several weeks. Below is a picture of the northbound lane that will be paved on Friday.

Construction is progressing with the installation of new storm sewer and pavement at the Lair Road/Albion intersection. The underground contractor is also installing new water services along the project. The contractor has removed the east side of the pavement and south bound traffic is moving through the project. The traffic control will be changing slightly next week. See the below announcement for the opening of east bound Lair Road.

ANNOUNCEMENT: East bound Lair Road will re-open Tuesday, August 26th to traffic heading south on Albion Avenue. Traffic will be rerouted onto the new construction. Albion Avenue will remain south bound traffic only and north bound traffic will follow the current detours. North bound traffic on Albion will NOT be able to go west on Lair Road. Drivers are asked to please obey all traffic signs and use caution when traveling through the construction area.
