Project map
Below is some information regarding switching the road reconstruction from Prairie Ave to Arcadian Ave.

Due to potentially re-aligning N. Prairie Avenue between the railroad tracks and St. Paul Ave., the planned 2017 reconstruction project is being delayed.  It is planned to substitute the reconstruction with Arcadian Avenue.

The Arcadian Avenue project limits are from 250’ west of Eugene Ct. to east of N. Greenfield Ave.

The Arcadian Avenue project will involve a complete road reconstruction including replacement of pavement, curbs, approaches and handicap ramps.  The utility upgrades include relaying portions of the water main and sanitary sewer and rehabilitating the storm sewer.   

The project is anticipated to start in early May and be complete by the end of October.  During construction, the road will be closed to through traffic.  Access will be maintained to driveways for residents & businesses within the construction limits until the concrete pavement is placed.  When the concrete pavement is placed, residents will lose access to driveways until the curb and approaches have been placed and cured.       

A letter to the residents along Arcadian will be sent out this week to let them know the project is occurring.  The DPW’s construction map will also be updated on the website with this change.
