Broadway work moves on to phase II
Break out the champagne!
The first phase of Alexandria’s Broadway reconstruction project is nearly complete.
With just a few finishing touches remaining between Third and Fifth Avenue on Broadway, the focus is now shifting to phase two of the project: the Sixth Avenue intersection.
Workers started the second phase on Monday, according to City Engineer Tim Schoonhoven. All of the pavement, curb and gutter, and sidewalk were removed.
The contractor also took down the existing traffic signal poles and street lights. Temporary sidewalks were set up and underground excavation has started.
The first part of the underground work will be the removal of the existing steam lines.
All together, phase two is expected to take about four weeks.
