Road Closure Notice: West 18th Street

Beginning August 2, 2022, the contractor will begin the reconstruction of West 18th Street from the intersection at Drury Lane through the intersection of College Street. In order for the contractor to begin pavement removal, a full road closure will be required. The road closure will be in effect for approximately eight (8) weeks, depending on the weather. Below, you will find a map with the closure area highlighted.18th street map

The planned work for this street includes removal of the existing pavement, and driveway approaches, installation of new water main and storm sewer, new concrete pavement and driveway approaches, and sod from the back of the new curb to the front edge of the sidewalk. Any landscaping, including plants and decorations located between the curb and the existing sidewalk are subject for removal by the contractor. If you intend to keep any of these materials, relocations outside of the right-of-way must take place ahead of the contractor to ensure they stay with the property. 

For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work.

During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area of West 18th Street. Residents can place their collection carts on either end of the street closure shown with the yellow boxes on the map. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street. Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open. Residents should have their carts out by 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection and brought in by 8:00 p.m. on the day of collection.
