Traffic advisory: Allard from City Park Avenue to Dumaine to close for a month

On Tuesday (April 27) beginning at 7 a.m., weather permitting, Allard Boulevard from City Park Avenue to Dumaine Street will close for approximately four weeks.

The Department of Public Works’ contractor, Fleming Construction Co., will perform underground waterline operations as part of the City Park Group A infrastructure improvement project.

Residents in this area were notified of the closure via a neighborhood canvass last week, according to a Mayor’s Office press release.

The closure will be in effect on weekdays during construction hours from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. through May 25. The roadway will reopen to traffic during non-construction hours.

Lane closure signs will be in place throughout construction. During this time, street parking and driveway access will be impacted.

Residents and visitors are advised to adhere to “No Parking” signs on the streets to avoid being ticketed or towed and to use caution when driving, bicycling or walking near the construction site.

The $6.1 million City Park Group A infrastructure improvement project calls for removing and replacing existing water and drainage lines, repairing the sewer line, repaving the roadway in asphalt, replacing damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons and installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.
