Post Date:08/31/2018 12:00 PM
As part of the Tripp Street extension project, the intersection of Wilmoth Avenue and Tripp Street will be closed for utility work beginning Tuesday, Sept. 4. This temporary intersection closure is anticipated to last one to two weeks, weather permitting. Drivers are asked to use alternate routes around this closure and are encouraged to use caution when traveling near the project area. For safety reasons, please keep children and pets away from the construction zone.
Construction of the extension of Tripp Street from Wilmoth Avenue to State Avenue began in May. The project involves new concrete and asphalt street pavement, water main installation, electric infrastructure, and storm water improvements.
