Work to turn Appleton St. back into two-way street begins Feb 4th.

Post Date:01/11/2019

A few weeks ago we told you about a project that will close access to downtown from S. Oneida St. for much of this year. Appleton St. bridge aerial photo

Starting Feb. 4th, Appleton St. between Lawrence St. and Prospect Ave. will be closed for work to remove the northbound leg of the bridge over Jones Park and build a new northbound leg to realign it with Appleton St. That work is part of a recommendation from our 2016 mobility study that will allow us to turn Appleton St. back into a two-way street this year.

The entire project is expected to be completed by October 15th. The southbound leg from downtown to the south side of the city could be reopened as soon as July 15th. Appleton St. bridge redesign

Access to and from Prospect Ave. is expected to be maintained throughout the length of the project. Appleton St. between Lawrence St. and College Ave. will be closed for a period of time during this project, as will Appleton St. between Washington St. and College Ave. Check back here on our website and our social media channels (Facebook/Twitter) for updates on the project and closure information.

The aerial photo shows the section of bridge work we are referring to. The rendering shows what the project improvements will look like from the vantage point of the new bridge section heading north into downtown.
