48th Street Northwest rehab to start

October 4, 2018

The rehabilitation of 48th Street Northwest from 31st Avenue to the Highway 52 West Frontage Road is slated to start Friday.

The project includes the construction of a 5-foot concrete sidewalk on the north side of 48th Street from the west side of Carlos O’Kelly’s to the intersection of 31st Avenue Northwest.

During the construction, access to Carlos O’Kelly’s and Rochester Motor Cars Mazda dealership is expected to be maintained, but 48th Street will be accessible only from 31st Avenue for a two-day period at the beginning of the project. The closure will allow the contractor to connect new storm sewer to the existing storm sewer.

Additionally, 48th Street is expected to be restricted to one lane during most of the project, which is scheduled to be completed by Oct. 26.
