For Immediate Release
Date: January 5, 2016
Work begins today on major streetscape improvements to Waters Avenue, which will include brick paver sidewalks, stamped concrete crosswalks, ADA compliance ramps, landscaping, and lighting. The multi-million dollar streetscape plan for Waters Avenue extends from Victory Drive to Wheaton Street, with the goal of beautifying and enhancing the area while also increasing public safety and accessibility. The streetscape plan is part of an overall revitalization effort within this major corridor to support neighborhood vitality and spur economic development.
The intersection of Waters Ave. and 37th St. will be closed today until Wednesday, January 20, for the installation of new crosswalks. Residents can expect intermittent closures along Waters Avenue through the end of May as the project progresses.
