March 6, 2015
Eastbound lane closure on Sunset Street between Dollison and Kimbrough avenues 10 a.m.-3 p.m. today.
The eastbound lane of Sunset Street between Kimbrough Avenue and Dollison Avenue will close between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. today for sidewalk removal as a part of The Link crossing project.
This $200,000 two-pronged project includes the design and construction of an accessible walk and bike path along Kimbrough south of Sunset Street to a crosswalk on Sunset with a High-Intensity Activated Cross Walk (HAWK) signal, along with a path connecting to the South Creek greenway trail; and a new accessible walk and bike path under Chestnut Expressway, connecting Chestnut Street to Sherman Avenue.
The contractor for the project is Hunter Chase. The funding source for this project is the 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax, and completion is expected by spring.
