Kinney Avenue will be reconstructed from Lake Michigan Drive to Leonard Street. Improvements to the corridor include constructing a center turn lane, adding concrete curb and gutter, replacing the roadside ditches with storm sewer, and adding sidewalk on the east side of the roadway.
Road reconstruction is anticipated to begin the week of April 29 and be complete by the end of September. Construction work will generally be conducted between 7 am and 7 pm Monday through Friday, with possible work on Saturdays.
Kinney Avenue will be closed to through traffic but will stay accessible to residents in the immediate construction area and embedded neighborhoods. There may be times when access will be limited to either north or south as storm sewer is installed. Driveway access may also be interrupted for short periods of time but will be restored by the end each workday. For traffic that does not have a destination within the construction zone, Wilson Avenue will be the posted detour for this project.
The contractor will make the necessary arrangements with postal service to assure uninterrupted mail delivery. This will likely be with a pool of temporary mailboxes at either end of the project.
The contractor will maintain uninterrupted garbage pickup. Please have your bin at the end of the driveway the night before pickup.
