Crosswalk work Begins on Fernside

Construction work to improve pedestrian safety began Monday, June 1, at Fernside Boulevard and Harvard Drive. The project includes the installation of a wireless solar, LED rectangular rapid-flashing beacon crosswalk system with push buttons, concrete and asphalt work, striping and signage. The project is expected to be complete by the middle of June. Construction work hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During construction, motorists may experience minor disruptions in traffic, temporary loss of parking spaces, noise and dust. Bus stop access will be maintained throughout the project.
