Demolition Permit

The demolition phase of the project is wrapping up. 

LPEA Work in the Alley

The LPEA work in the alley has started and is progressing slower than anticipated.  It will be tentatively completed around October 22nd. 

Construction will occur between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm daily.  Canyon Construction is doing the excavation. LPEA is relocating the overhead electrical cables to a trench. 

Traffic Control will be provided along E 5th Street and in the alley during the construction time. Neighbors that need to access their garages from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM will be accommodated as much as possible during the construction on a case by case basis.
The alley will be asphalt patched after this phase is complete and will be repaved at end of the hotel project completion.

E 2nd Avenue/College Drive Signal Reconfiguration and E 2nd Avenue Restriping

East 2nd Avenue has been turned into a two-way street between E 5th Street and College Drive. It was previously a one-way (northbound) street. The signal at College Drive and E 2nd Avenue has been updated to accommodate this change. Permanent Stop Signs will be installed on E 2nd Avenue (in both directions) at the intersection of 5th Street.

Travelers are encouraged to utilize additional caution in this area as the community gets used to this new street configuration. 

Once the permanent signs are installed, the development team is able to pull the On-Site Excavation Permit and start hauling dirt down E 2nd Avenue to the College Drive signal.
