Phase 5 of the Central Business District reconstruction continues with paving on Broad Street between 5th and 6th Avenues scheduled to begin Nov. 1st. The project is on pace to have the street opened to traffic before the Thanksgiving holiday.
Phase 5 started in 2016 with the reconstruction of Broad Street between 1st and 3rd Avenues, Park Street from 3rd to 5th, and 3rd Avenue between Broad and Park Streets. During the 2017 construction season, work will be completed on 5th Avenue from Broad to State Streets and on Broad Street between 5th and 6th Avenues.
Like the previous four phases, the street surface will be removed, underground infrastructure replaced, street resurfaced, and sidewalks and lighting replaced or added. Phase 5 will complete the street upgrades planned for the central business district.
