Spring is finally here, and crews are gearing up for Lake St. construction. Tomorrow, March 31, Lake St. will be closed from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. between Blaisdell Ave. and 5th Ave. When Lake St. reopens, it will be reduced to two lanes between Blaisdell Ave. and 5th Ave. S, as crews prepare for road pavement removals.
Beginning Thu, April 1, you can expect sidewalk and roadway removals to begin ahead of underground utility replacement.
Motorists and pedestrians should anticipate some intersection closures and will need to follow the posted detours. Work on Lake St. is expected to be completed in September.
