ARLINGTON The second of three phases of construction on Olympic Avenue is set to start June 11.
No Parking signs were posted June 4 at 11 p.m. on Olympic Avenue from Fourth through Second streets to ensure that all cars are cleared from the street by the time grinding kicks off June 5 at 2 a.m. Strider Construction will close this section of downtown to grind the current street surface, but the contractor hopes to avoid impacting local businesses and anticipates that the road will be reopened by noon that same day.
Strider Construction completed the curbs and gutters from Division through Fifth streets May 31, and has scheduled curb and gutter installations on Fourth Street June 7. Asphalt preparation work is currently slated for June 7, with paving to follow June 8, weather permitting.
During asphalt preparation and paving, Olympic Avenue from Division through Fourth streets will be closed to vehicle traffic, but city staff members expect that this section of downtown will be reopened June 9.
