Weather permitting, on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, the north side of the Melrose Ave. and Sunset St. intersection will be closed to begin roadway reconstruction.
Vehicle traffic moving east-west on Melrose Ave. and south on Sunset St. will function normally. Vehicles will be detoured on Golfview Ave. and Grand Ave. to access Sunset St. north of Melrose. The sidewalk along the north side of the intersection will also be closed. Pedestrian traffic is being detoured to the south side of Melrose Ave. between Sunset St. and Birkdale Ct.
This stage of construction, and the traffic pattern described above, is anticipated to remain in place through the end of July. Drivers are asked to use caution around the work site, expect delays, allow extra travel time, and find alternative routes when possible. This project will widen Melrose Ave. to construct a left-turn lane, rebuild the north side of the intersection, and install new traffic signals.
