    The Contractor will be finishing up the last of the public utility work under the railroad bridge in the next couple of days and getting the temporary access to Our Lady of Grace put back together with gravel surfacing. However, the schedule has changed slightly from last week.

    Pending weather the remainder of the week, the plan is to close Normandale Rd south of the intersection of Eden Ave and Arcadia Ave to all traffic beginning on Monday morning, May 16. Eden Ave will continue to be closed between Brookside Ave and Our Lady of Grace. Access will remain to Our Lady of Grace from the east only as is currently in place. However, parents who currently use Normandale Rd/the W Frontage Rd to get to Eden Ave will be guided via signs across Highway 100 at Benton Ave and then north on the E Frontage Rd. Refer to the attached map.

    Then, on Wednesday, May 18, the remainder of the Eden Ave and Arcadia Ave intersection will be closed to all traffic. All access to Our Lady of Grace will be via the temporary driveway (as it was earlier this spring) from the west only. This traffic pattern will remain in place through the end of the school year on June 2. The intersection is expected to be closed at least into the month of August.

    The contractor is moving faster than expected on the underground utilities and is ahead of schedule. In order to keep the project moving quickly, these crews will remain on site and working on the underground utilities in the intersection of Eden Ave and Arcadia Ave.


    This means that the intersection will be closed to all traffic beginning on May 16. Both eastbound and westbound through traffic will be detoured via Vernon Ave and 50th St as it has been at various times already this spring. This closure is expected to remain in place for a few months. Updates on the re-opening of the intersection will be provided as work progresses this summer.

    With the drier weather, underground utility work is accelerating on Eden Ave and the contractor is making good progress. Pavement removals are complete and sanitary sewer construction between Arcadia Ave and the Our Lady of Grace driveway is underway. Once sanitary sewer work has advanced to the driveway, the contractor will construct new water main and storm sewer within the same segment.

    Pending weather, the contractor is hoping to be complete with all three new utilities through the driveway by approximately Friday, May 6th. This means that beginning on approximately Monday, May 9th, Eden Ave will be closed to traffic between the railroad bridge and the recently-installed temporary driveway to Our Lady of Grace. Eastbound traffic will be detoured via the route shown in the attached map and signs will be in place for Our Lady of Grace traffic. Westbound thru traffic will continue to be detoured via the currently in-place route on 50th St and Vernon Ave.

    Additional information will be provided as the contractor’s schedule becomes clearer.
