On Monday, July 21, 2014, the south side of the East 71st Street intersection at Cedar Avenue will close in order to fully reconstruct the south side intersection. Northbound traffic will be detoured east along Central Avenue to East 79th Street north. Southbound traffic will be detoured east along Cedar Avenue to East 79th Street south. Access to all businesses, residences and side streets will be maintained during construction. The detour will remain in place through July 26, 2014.
This Project extends along 1.40 miles of Cedar Avenue from East 55th Street to East 89th Street and includes pavement replacement, new curb, sidewalks, driveway aprons, drainage improvements, watermain replacements, pavement markings, and streetscape. The project is scheduled for completion by June 30, 2015.
