STAGE TWO: The Lebanon Stormwater Management Board project on Lafayette Avenue is nearing completion on its second phase. The road is currently closed from the north side of the Patterson Street/Chicago Street intersection to south of the Hoy Avenue intersection. Once completed, this section will open up and the project will move from the north side of the Hoy Avenue intersection to south of the Riley Road intersection.
. As part of that project, Lafayette Avenue has been closed from north of Powell Street to south of the Patterson Street/Chicago Street intersection. This portion of the project has been completed and this section of the road will be opened as of today.
For safety concerns and to maintain the project completion date of mid-November, additional road closures will be added. The road closures will be consecutive, yet independent. Closure one will be fully complete and the roadway re-opened before closure two will occur, and the same with closure three.
• Closure one: Beginning this Monday through Friday, Oct. 16, the intersection of Lafayette Avenue and Patterson Street will be closed for installation of stormwater structures. Lafayette Avenue will be open in its entirety and the Chicago Street intersection will be open; however, there will be no access to Patterson Street from Lafayette Avenue.
• Closure two: Beginning Monday, Oct. 19, through Friday, Nov.13, Lafayette Avenue will be closed from the north side of the Patterson Street/Chicago Street intersection to south of the Hoy Avenue intersection. The intersection of Patterson Street/Chicago Street will be open, as will Lafayette Avenue to the south.
• Closure three: Beginning Monday, Nov. 16, through Friday, Nov. 27, Lafayette Avenue will be closed from the north side of the Hoy Avenue intersection to south of the Riley Road intersection.
During closures two and three, Lafayette Avenue will be closed to through traffic; however, residents will be allowed access to their property through the construction zone. Officials ask residents to use caution in the area as it is a construction zone with heavy equipment and open road surfaces. Through traffic is asked to observe the posted detour routes.
