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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
