Beginning Monday, August 12, Prescott Avenue from 47th to 48th street will close for utility work, paving and sidewalk reconstruction. The roadway is expected to reopen in mid-October, weather permitting. During construction, the street will be closed to all vehicle traffic and parking but pedestrian access to all businesses will be maintained.
The College View Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 4801 Prescott Ave., will allow parking in its church parking lot Monday through Friday for customers and employees of Prescott Avenue businesses.
The project is being funded with capital improvement funds through the City's Public Works and Utilities and Urban Development Departments. It includes water main, storm sewer and lighting improvements as well as new sidewalks on both sides of Prescott Avenue.
