Eighth Street Connection Construction Scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 6
Construction crews are scheduled to begin the Eighth Street connection construction Tuesday, Sept. 6, following the Labor Day holiday.

  • In the first week, motorists can anticipate minimal traffic impacts on Seventh Street near the Eighth Street Bridge and Eighth Street near School Street.
  • Approximately 1,000 cubic yards per day will be excavated west of City Hall. This operation will be similar to the south causeway hauling activities earlier this year.
  • Trees in the work zone will be removed during the excavation phase of this project.
