Starting Monday May 1st, Franklin Construction will begin work for the Pearson Road Safe Routes to School Project. The project, along the south side of Pearson Rd. between Skyway and Academy Dr. will include construction of new sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and driveways in areas where they are currently absent. This $1,000,000 grand-funded project will provide safe facilities for children walking to three public schools on Pearson Rd.
Residents are advised to use caution while driving in the work zones. The contractor will deploy various traffic controls throughout the project, including a lane closure between Skyway and Almond St. and a lane shift between Scottwood Dr. and Academy Dr. Minor delays to through traffic are expected.
Construction will continue through Summer 2017 and is expected to be complete prior to the commencement of the 2017/18 school year.
