On Monday, February 22, 2016, Day's Excavating will begin work on the realignment of Pennington Street at Toole Avenue. Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend work. There will also be occasional night work. Pennington Street will be closed at Toole Avenue. At least one travel lane on Toole Avenue will be open in each direction at all times during the project. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times; the sidewalk on at least one side of Toole will remain open. The project is scheduled to be complete mid-May.
This project reconstructs and realigns Pennington Street from Sixth Avenue to Toole Avenue, allowing for a safer, more perpendicular intersection of Pennington Street with Toole Avenue. Improvements include new signing, pavement markings, hardscape, and landscape on Toole Avenue, as well as traffic signal upgrades at the Pennington/Toole intersection.
