Harvard Avenue Resurfacing Project

Straight from City Hall

Work has begun on Section 1 of the Harvard Avenue resurfacing project (East 116th Street to East 131st Street).


One-way westbound traffic will be maintained between East 116th Street and East 131th Street. Eastbound traffic will be detoured south along East 116th Street, east on Miles Road and north on East 131st Street.

Driveway access will be maintained at all times.  Motorists will need to be alert for lane shifts and barrels used to direct traffic. This project is scheduled for completion in November 2016.

The Harvard Avenue resurfacing project includes asphalt milling, pavement base repair, asphalt resurfacing, installation of ADA compliant ramps and new pavement markings.
