Update: January 16, 2023

An updated Road Closure diagram has been issued for the West Hill Sanitary and Storm Sewer Separation Project Phase 5 as the project begins underground sewer replacement work on Lucas Street. 

Lucas Street is reduced to one lane of traffic from Newell to Logan (starting Monday, Jan. 9, 2023) as underground sewer replacement work has resumed with the westbound lane closed at Logan and at Newell. Westbound traffic will be detoured onto Logan, to Newell, and back to Lucas. 

Eastbound traffic will not be affected by the lane closure.

Underground work on Lucas from West 8th Street to West 4th Street has been completed with repaving completed to the Green Street intersection. A temporary rock surface has been applied to the section of Lucas from Green Street to West 4th Street with paving scheduled for early spring.

The area remains an active construction zone with fines doubled for traffic violations. Please slow down as street conditions may change due to the weather.
