6th Avenue- The contractor for the 6th Avenue construction project will be paving the final layer of asphalt and placing pavement markings on Monday, September 25 through Wednesday, September 27. During that time the contractor will close 6th Avenue from 54th Street to Library Park (7th Avenue) to perform this work. Sidewalks will remain open during the road closure for access to businesses. After that period, the traffic control will be reinstalled back to one travel lane and one parking lane, alternating sides of 6th Avenue depending on the work being completed. The remaining work will include crack repairs, landscaping, lighting installation, completion of Friendship Park, and other minor finishing items.
58th Street- The contractor will also close 58th Street from 6th Avenue to 3rd Avenue for paving and pavement markings on Monday, September 25 through Wednesday, September 27. Sidewalks will remain open during the road closure for access to businesses. After that period, the traffic control will be reinstalled back to one travel lane and one parking lane, alternating sides of 58th Street depending on the work being completed. The remaining work will include crack repairs, landscaping, lighting installation, restoration of the storage site, other minor finishing items, and the sidewalk, curb and gutter, lighting, paving, and pavement marking on 58th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue.
The Kenosha Classic Cruise-In Car Show will be held on 6th Avenue on Saturday, September 2. In order to be ready for this event, the 6th Avenue contractor will be making an extra push during the last few weeks of August. This push will result in the completion of the 6th Avenue sidewalks, brick work and the first of two layers of asphalt pavement being placed on the road. This will provide the event and the businesses a hard surface, free of debris, for the weekend. In order to accomplish this, the contractor will be closing 6th Avenue to traffic from 55th Street to Library Park (7th Avenue) for the week of August 28 through September 1. Sidewalks will remain open for access to businesses. The contractor plans to spend the day of September 1 cleaning up 6th Avenue in preparation for the car show.
After Labor Day weekend, the contractor will continue to work, focusing on the intersection of 6th Avenue and 56th Street, and the south side of 58th Street from 7th Avenue to 3rd Avenue. While their focus will be these two areas, finishing work on 6th Avenue will also continue and may require lane closures and parking restrictions. Access to businesses will be maintained. All major work is anticipated to be completed by the end of September. Minor finishing items are scheduled to be completed within the first two weeks following.
On Thursday, July 6 the intersection of 6th Avenue/6th Avenue A at 59th Street will be closed for a portion of the day in order to perform pavement patching. Additionally, 6th Avenue at 60th Street will be closed for a portion of that day for the same reason. The contractor will not be allowed to have both 59th Street and 60th Street closed at the same time.
The week of June 26th the contractor will begin pouring curb and gutter along 6th Avenue. They will start at 55th Street and work to the south.
Following the curb and gutter, concrete will be poured against the buildings to establish a consistent concrete pad for the rest of the walk to match. This will allow the contractor to bridge the gap area with plywood, allowing businesses to stay open and clientele to navigate to business entrances. Once the pad is complete, light pole bases will be poured and then the contractor will begin pouring the sidewalk.
For the next couple of weeks there may be periodic, short-term closures of 58th Street.
