Construction Update: Street closures at Stone Way N and N 34th Street for drainage installation delayed to week of Oct. 20

Note: Drainage installation at Stone Way North and North 34th Street has been delayed for another week to Oct. 20 as construction crews continued to remove groundwater.

Starting the week of Oct. 20, the North Transfer Station project will begin installing drainage systems at Stone Way North and North 34th Street. This will involve 24-hour closure of Stone Way North over multiple days. It will also involve a partial closure along the north side of North 34th Street during work hours.

Schedule of Closures

  • Week of Oct. 20 – Stone Way North just north of North 34th Street will be closed for daytime excavation work. Closure will be 24-hours and is expected to last up to five days.
  • Week of Oct. 27 – Sidewalk in front of the Brooks Building on Stone Way North and North 34th Street will be closed during daytime hours to install drainage systems.
  • Weeks of Nov. 3 and Nov. 10 – North side of North 34th Street will be partially closed during daytime hours to install drainage systems.
  • Week of Nov. 10 – Sidewalk in front of Brooks Building will be restored.

To minimize impacts, crews will conduct work during daytime hours from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.  Pedestrian ramps and re-routing will allow access to the adjacent buildings and businesses.  “No-Park” signs will be placed near Stone Way North and North 34th Street prior to the work.  The work areas will be fenced off for public safety.
