Our City Traffic Engineer sent around the following email notice to advise the staff of what to expect as far as traffic impacts from the light pole replacement project on Haymaker Parkway over the next couple of weeks:
The contractor will be removing the existing street light poles on both bridges on Haymaker Parkway. Starting Sept. 21st they will be removing the light poles on the west bridge between Longmere and Middlebury. Beginning the week of Sept. 27th, after the fence is removed, the light poles will be coming down on the east bridge between River and S. Water. The circuits will still be energized but the bridge area will be dark. We expect this to last for a period of 3-4 weeks. We will also be closing the sidewalk between River and S. Water during this time. A press release will be sent out separately on the closing.
