Beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, July 6, southbound Lincoln Way (Route 2031) will close to traffic from Henderson Road to Jacks Run Road (Route 48) through midnight on Sunday, July 19. This short-term closure of southbound Lincoln Way is necessary to accommodate undercutting activities and full depth reconstruction. Northbound traffic will not be impacted.

I'd like to thank everyone for attending the meeting this morning. If there is anyone not on the email list that you know would like to be included, please let me know and I will add them. Also, just a reminder that we are going to meet again on 7/15/15 @ 9:00 A.M. at Rodos. Below is the 2 week look ahead schedule for the Lincoln Way Project:

Construction Schedule
7/2/15 The contractor will continue with grading of areas behind the sidewalk and curb on the right side of Lincoln Way between SR 48 and Guice St. They will also continue with paving driveway adjustments in that area as well. The contractor will also have a crew installing drainage around Kelly St.
7/6/15 The contractor will be implementing the closure and Detour of Southbound Lincoln Way from Henderson Rd. to SR 48. Only the area between Henderson Rd. and the Sunoco will be closed. Bi-directional traffic will be allowed from SR 48 to the Sunoco. The contractor will be milling the closed lanes on this first day. They will also have a second crew working on drainage around Kelly St.
7/7/15 The contractor will be excavating, undercutting and backfilling the area between the Sunoco and C.S. Kim’s Karate. They will also have a second crew continuing with the drainage work around Kelly St.
7/8/15 The contractor will be excavating, undercutting and backfilling the area between C.S. Kim’s Karate and Dr. Fontana’s Office. They will once again have a second crew continuing with the drainage around Kelly St.
7/9/15 The contractor will be excavating, undercutting and backfilling the area between Dr. Fontana’s Office and Henderson Rd. They will once again have a second crew continuing with drainage work around Kelly St.
7/10/15 - 7/11/15 The contractor will be placing subbase material (2A Stone – 6 inch depth) from Sunoco to Henderson Rd.
7/13/15 - 7/14/15 The contractor will be paving the base course (4 inch depth) from Sunoco to Henderson Rd.
7/15/15 - 7/16/15 The contractor will be paving the binder course (4 inch depth) from Sunoco to Henderson Rd.
7/17/15 The contractor will lift the closure and shift the work area to the left side of Lincoln Way to begin with drainage work. At this time there will be a lane in each direction for the entire length of Lincoln Way.
*This schedule is pending inclement weather. If we do get a rain-out, the scheduled operation for that day would be pushed back to the next day. **Due to the nature of the undercutting work planned for 7/7, 7/8 and 7/9 we will either be excavating and undercutting between 1 and 3 feet in depth based on the existing material found. If the material found is unsuitable, we will have to undercut to the maximum of 3 feet which would possibly extend that work a day or two and push the rest of the schedule back. This is something we will not know until we get in there to excavate. If this is the case I will send out an email update with the revised schedule. Regardless of what is done, our closure and detour will be lifted by the end of the day on 7/19/15 at the absolute latest.

Below is the detour that is going to be posted during the closure:

-From southbound Lincoln Way
• Turn left onto State Street
• Turn left onto Pennsylvania Avenue
• Turn right onto 5th Avenue (Route 148)
• Turn right onto Lincoln Highway (Route 30)
• Turn right onto Jacks Run Road (Route 48)
• Turn right to continue back onto Lincoln Way
• End detour

*Our Press Office will also be sending out a public press release for the closure and detour either later this afternoon or tomorrow. In this release it will be noted that “Businesses will remain open to customers during construction”.
