Paving on N Killingsworth next week will detour and delay traffic between Greeley and Boston
The eastbound lane of N Killingsworth Street will close to traffic between N Greeley and N Boston avenues beginning early on Monday, April 21. The eastbound lane will be closed all hours and all days for about one week for final street paving following a sewer construction project.
The westbound lane of Killingsworth will remain open during the paving work but motorists and bicyclists should expect delays and use alternate routes if possible.
There will be no on-street parking near the work zone. Business patrons and residents who normally park on Killingsworth between Greeley and Boston must park on side streets during the paving project.
This work is part of the $6.5 million dollar Overlook Sewer Replacement Project to replace or repair about 17,000 feet of sewer pipes in poor condition. The city installed many of the sewers before 1920. The project reduces the possibility of breaks, leads, blockages and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
