Argonaut Constructors will be grinding and overlaying Sunnyside Ave from East Blithedale Avenue to Miller Avenue. This work require roadway closure and traffic detour. Dust and noise impact is expected from the grinding operation and will be mitigated using water trucks. Pedestrian and delivery truck access will be maintained on Sunnyside Avenue during construction. To prepare for the pavement overlay, the contractor will be lowering the utility covers in the pavement area on Tuesday 6/13 which will require lane closure.

To help make it easier to enjoy and support downtown businesses, there will be free parking during the roadway closures along East Blithedale (Throckmorton to Forrest St) and at the Depot Plaza parking lot.
