Construction Update

The 100 Block of Gay Street is now closed and the Contractor is in the process of taking up the asphalt. It is very windy there today but water to being used to keep down the dust.

Sometime tomorrow would probably be an excellent time for anyone wishing to take photos of the old trolley line as much of it should be exposed then. You can see that in some places today.

The advertising signs have been sent to the City Traffic Shop for installation on barricades and should be in place soon.

Discussions continue regarding a sign designating parking on Jackson Avenue as well as some signs along the detour route. A new map is also posted at the City web site showing the detour route.

KPD is also working on additional security measures for the Jackson Avenue Parking lot.

The parking spaces along State Street have been bagged and labeled "Special Permit Only- Tow Away Zone". These have been designated primarily for residential loading and unloading. This program is administered through Tony Vandergriff of the City Engineering Department at 215-6100.

We are continuing to discuss other parking issues, particularly temporary parking on the Gay Street Viaduct as some have suggested here.

The weekly construction meeting will occur tomorrow so more will be posted then.
