This week, A. Lamp Concrete Contractors performed removal of existing sidewalk, excavation for new sidewalk, frame and pour concrete foundations for new poles, installation of electrical conduit, and removal of existing guard rail.

Next week the contractor is scheduled to perform installation of electrical wiring, grading for new sidewalk, and cutting the existing curb.

There will be no full ramp closures throughout the duration of the project.  However, there may be instance when getting around this area will be difficult due to  construction operations.

Thank you in advance for your patience during this construction project.
