Boulevard of the Allies road work begins Thursday night
A $7 million project to repairs parts of the battered Boulevard of the Allies will begin Thursday night and continue through early August, causing closed lanes overnight and in between rush hours.
Work will start with single-lane restrictions on the Boulevard of the Allies from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. weeknights in Oakland between the Birmingham Bridge and Bates Street. Additional daylight work requiring single-lane restrictions may occur from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays.
Nearly 50,000 vehicles a day travel that stretch of road.
The project includes milling and resurfacing, concrete patching, minor structure repairs, traffic signal replacement at Bates Street and grates safe for bicycles between the Liberty Bridge and Bates Street.
Construction work will then shift to the area between the Birmingham Bridge and the ramps to Crosstown Boulevard and the Liberty Bridge. Overnight and off-peak daylight lane restrictions will occur in this section. In addition, two weekend closures for paving operations may occur.
