Construction at Van Buren, Henry Streets Intersection to Improve Pedestrian Safety
Facilities Services is planning to begin construction at the intersection of Van Buren and Henry streets to improve pedestrian safety. Improvements include a new crosswalk on Van Buren Street, pedestrian crossing signs and sidewalk replacement.
The construction will take place on the north and south sides of Van Buren Street and will be phased to close only one corner of the intersection at a time. The work is scheduled for mid-July through mid-August. For everyone’s safety, you are encouraged to remain alert in work areas, watch for route changes and follow the pedestrian signage for sidewalk closures.
Delays in the proposed work may occur as a result of poor weather, unforeseen circumstances and/or for safety reasons. In the event that there is a significant delay, Facilities Services will send out revised information as soon as possible.
