Lakeview Avenue Construction Update: Final Pave

Lakeview Avenue Construction Update: Final Pave

UPDATE (5/23/2019): The Lakeview Avenue Roadway Improvements Project is nearing completion. 

Paving: 
The east end of Lakeview Avenue between Orange Court and Haselton Street is scheduled to be paved Tuesday, May 28th.  This should complete the final pave.  Lakeview Avenue will be blocked to all traffic between Fahnstock Street and Haselton Street.  Only people living in this section will be allowed in and out while crews are working.  The rest of Lakeview Avenue from Fahnstock Street to Bay Street will be open for use.  Traffic heading east and needing to access Haselton Street can follow the detours.   

A small area west of Bay Street will also be repaved.  For traffic heading east on Kurt Street and approaching Lakeview Avenue - vehicles will be have to merge into one lane. However, you will still be able to turn right or left onto Bay Street or continue across to Lakeview Avenue at the light. Please see map below.

Traffic Pattern: 
Beginning on Friday, May 31st, the curve at the east end that runs by the small triangular park will become One-Way.  Traffic travelling east on Lakeview Avenue will be able to veer south onto the curve and merge onto East Crooked Lake Drive.  Traffic heading north on East Crooked Lake Drive will have to continue up to Lakeview Avenue past the park and make a left. Please see map below.
