FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Public Works has authorized Woody’s Express Trucking, LLC to begin construction on the Scenic Avenue Sidewalk project beginning Monday, June 25. The project is expected to be complete by the end of August.
The Scenic Avenue Sidewalk Project consists of constructing a shared pedestrian/bicycle path along Scenic Avenue from Battlefield Road to Nathanael Greene Memorial Park. New sidewalk will be continued north along Scenic Avenue to connect with existing sidewalk. This project will complete a pedestrian connection from Battlefield Road to Sunshine Street and provide a bicycle connection from on-street bike lanes on Battlefield Road to the South Creek Greenway Trail at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park.
The project will involve closures at various times. Drivers are asked to use caution when driving through the construction project, and use alternate roadways when possible.
Funding is being split between Zone 3 Pothole Funds and the 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax Alternative Transportation Program.
