Paving & Traffic Notice: Oswego Village & State Street near Starbucks Wed. 4/5/17

Last December, emergency repair work was conducted on a broken sewer line and man hole located in the Oswego Village parking lot and a portion of State Street, near Starbucks and the 365 market. Throughout the winter, a temporary pavement patch has been in place over the repaired sewer line. Crews have been waiting for the weather to improve before conducting the final restoration and repaving work.

Tomorrow, Wednesday April 5, the final paving will take place between 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. within the Oswego Village parking lot. During this time, the access directly in front of Starbucks on State Street will be closed. Access to Starbucks and the 365 market will be available at the Oswego Village main traffic signal at State Street and Northshore Road. Pedestrian and customer access will be maintained at all times.

To complete the paving work, a single northbound lane will be closed on State Street, near Starbucks, between 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Please watch for signage and expect some delays during this time.

Dismantling the red mobile crane.

Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

On Thursday, the third and final crane that was used for construction was dismantled and removed off-site. As construction comes to a close, more equipment and materials will be leaving the site.

In mid-April, crews expect to remove the large construction trailers currently located on the western corner of the site. Removal is expected to take about a week. A small trailer will be present for the remaining work, near where the carpenters' shed was located on the west side of the site.
