The quadrangle structure is nearly 40 years old, and holds traffic signals, lights and a large tree every holiday season. Contractor crews working for the city will use power tools and sand blasting equipment to remove the existing paint. Then they’ll prime the structure and add a fresh layer of paint to prevent further deterioration.
Crews will close the intersection and build a containment system to prevent contamination during each full weekend closure. The intersection will be closed to vehicle traffic for two consecutive weekends:
· 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, through 7 a.m. Monday, Oct. 28
· 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, through 7 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4
Drivers will follow a signed detour during the closure. Pedestrian access will remain open during the work.
