East Ninth Street Construction


FYI neighbors, the City has a timeline available for the repair of East 9th St.  The project will be completed in four construction phases:

  •         Phase 1: The project will begin in July with the reconstruction of the 9th & Connecticut intersection.
  •       Phase 2:  Reconstruction from New Hampshire to Connecticut.  Work will not begin prior to the Boys & Girls Club fundraiser event at 888 New Hampshire on August 25th.
  •         Phase 3: Reconstruction from Connecticut to Pennsylvania Street, except the intersection of 9th & New York.
  •         Phase 4: Reconstruction of 9th & New York intersection.

During construction, the contractor will provide access to adjacent properties with access adjacent to 9th Street. The project completion date to open to unrestricted vehicular and pedestrian traffic is November 30, 2018.

Staff recently met again with St. Luke AME Church at 9th & New York. The Church is continuing to research plans and funding to improve ADA accessibility at the northwest entrance to the building.  The current design plan allows the church an opportunity to reconfigure the access and tie into the public sidewalk when they proceed with their project.  If the Church provides a plan and schedule to modify the entrance by July, adjustments can be made in the city project to connect to the building improvements.
