Barstow St.& Riverfront St. Improvements

Project Update: August 7, 2020

This week the contractor poured new concrete sidewalk along Barstow St. from W. Main St. to South St., and also poured the concrete paver base along the east side if Barstow St. within that segment.  The electrical subcontractor installed additional light bases and began the installation for the monotube type traffic signal bases today.  The structural soil for the new terrace trees along Barstow St. was installed this week in conjunction with the sidewalk work.


Next week the sidewalk and concrete paver base pouring will continue along Barstow St. from Wisconsin Avenue to South St., and the electrical subcontractor will continue their installation of traffic signal bases and pull boxes both at the Barstow/South/West Broadway and Barstow/Wisconsin intersections.


Traffic Control/Access

Barstow St. is closed to through traffic from Wisconsin Avenue to W. Main Street.  The Barstow St. and Wisconsin Avenue intersection, and the Barstow St. and W. Main St. intersections will remain open to traffic operations. 


Municipal Lot #2 is currently closed to all vehicle traffic for the duration of concrete cure time.


Please follow the traffic control devices and signs.  Through traffic should not enter the work zone and shall utilize an alternate route. 

All the dates and times above are subject to change and are weather dependent.  I will update the group if anything changes from the above information.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the project, please feel free to contact me.
