For the Week of May 21-25, 2018 generated 05/18/2018
Starting on Monday, May 21, United Companies will restart work on the Emerald Park Access construction project. The first phase of work will be reconstruction of the intersection of Emerald Park Lane and Lincoln Avenue. Expected to occur until mid-June, work on the highway (Lincoln Ave) includes reconstruction of the median, placement of additional drainage improvements, and restriping.
Lincoln Avenue will be reduced to one lane in either direction. When possible, crews will attempt to open lanes of the highway to traffic, especially on weekends. This will not always be possible and there may be times when work is not occurring but lanes remain closed. The travelers expect traffic delays, especially during peak commuting periods.
Users of the Emerald Park fields and the Botanic Park can expect to see work within the parking lot near Pamela Lane. During construction activities, there will be times when up to half of the parking lot could be closed. Parking along Pamela Lane is not allowed by park users. In addition, the new crossing is not complete and is not open for public use, even for pedestrians. Using the new crossing area to access the park is considered trespassing and those using that area to cross the railroad tracks could be subject to enforcement.
