  • This is a photoshopped imaged to show conceptually what Crest Avenue will look like after construction. It will be repaved with asphalt and have new gutters and curbs.

Crest Avenue Construction

Construction on Crest Avenue will last 6-9 months. This duration is required because crews must install new sewer mains on both the north and south sides of Crest Avenue and connect homes to those new lines before removing the old sewer line in the center of the road. Crest Avenue will be closed to through traffic during construction. Driveway access will be limited at times, so the contractor will work with individual households to identify alternate parking, and if needed, provide alternate means of transporting residents to and from temporary parking. Services such as trash collection, recycling collection, mail and deliveries will continue without interruption.
