The lane closures are necessary to grind down the existing pavement and repave 1.69 lane miles of the street. The paving project will involve adding rumble strips to the centerline ofMarine Driveto improve safety. Rumble strips will be added to the newly paved section east of the residential area. The roadway will also be striped on the road edge to define parking areas and create more shoulder space for people traveling by bicycle. No on-street parking will be removed as part of this project.
One traffic lane will remain open at all times. Local access to residences and businesses will be provided. The public is advised to expect delays, travel cautiously, observe lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
