The first phase of the Cotner Boulevard rehabilitation project will begin Tuesday, September 17, weather permitting. The work will result in lane closures from Adams Street to Leighton Avenue. The contractor, Pavers Inc., may elect to close the entire street during the milling and asphalt operation for no more than three days.
The project also includes the rehabilitation of Cotner Boulevard from Leighton to Fairfax following the completion of the first phase. Work on this portion of Cotner will require a total street closure. The entire project is expected to take six weeks to complete.
In addition to new asphalt and pavement markings, the project includes new pedestrian curb ramps to meet ADA standards. Access to businesses and driveways may be limited for short durations during milling and asphalt operations. If a total closure is needed, the contractor and City officials will coordinate with local businesses and residences to maintain access as much as possible.
