On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, T&R Dirt Construction, Inc. began construction of the brick crosswalks across Hamilton and Antrim Avenues at Ninth Street.
The bricks were an old pavement surface that was uncovered by last year's asphalt mill and inlay project. This project includes raising the bricks to the current surface level to create more aesthetically pleasing brick crosswalks.
At times during construction, Hamilton and Antrim Avenues will be closed to traffic at Ninth Street, and Hamilton and Antrim will be closed to through traffic between 10th and 8th Streets. Numerous alternate routes are available so inconveniences and delays should be minimal. The work is expected to be completed by the end of March, weather permitting.
The $20,000 project is a holdover of the City of Salina's $4.7 million 2018 street capital improvement program.
