  • Northbound and southbound Campbell Road at Lincoln Avenue.
  • Westbound Lincoln Avenue at S. Campbell Road.

The contractor will be installing the new curbing along the east side of the road between 10 Mile and Lincoln throughout the week of July 2nd, likely after the July 4th holiday.   Residents on the east side of the road will receive 24-hour notice via a door hanger when their driveway will no longer be accessible for vehicles.  During pouring operations there may be greater delays for traffic traveling on S.

The south side of Parkway Drive west of Arlington Avenue will remain closed during the week of July 2nd while the concrete cures.

Linwood Avenue - Webster Road to Glenwood Road

On Monday July 2nd, weather permitting, the contractor will begin paving the road.

Driveway approaches will be placed once the road pavement has cured. Please do not move barricades or drive on new concrete until the barricades are removed by the contractor.

If desired, residents may drop off garbage and recycling receptacles at the corners of Webster or Glenwood before 7:00 a.m. and pick them up later in the day.
