The City of Gillette's Development Services and Utilities Departments announce updates to road construction projects, including Gillette Avenue, 2nd Street lane closure ~ Emerson Avenue, 9th Street, and an alley closure.
Paving on Gillette Avenue from 2nd Street to 3rd Street is planned for the end of next week (8/2). When the mainline paving is in place it will be about a week before traffic can be on the surface and the U-turn at 3rd Street will be used. Please note that it will take longer for the 3rd Street/Gillette Avenue intersection to open.
The intersection of 4th Street and Gillette Avenue will be completely closed to through traffic beginning Friday, July 25th at 5 p.m. Please use an alternative route.
Placement of gutter and sidewalk along 7th Street at Twin Spruce is underway. The paving of 7th Street is planned for Thursday, July 31st - with the opening of 7th Street at Gillette Avenue taking place the following week.
Sidewalks along Gillette Avenue from 6th Street to 7th Street will begin late next week (8/1). This will be followed by paving work on this section - when the paving is complete it will be approximately a week before traffic can be on the surface.
**Due to work on 3rd Street west of Gillette Avenue, it is recommended that pedestrians be encouraged to use the alleys to access the businesses between 3rd Street and 4th Street on Gillette Avenue. Otherwise, pedestrians on the west wide of Gillette Avenue can expect to have to U-turn at 3rd Street back to the alley west of 4th Street to cross to the east side of Gillette Avenue.
