During a 10-week period beginning the week August 20, Ponderosa Homes will be working on the realignment of Cameron Avenue between Martin Avenue and Palmer Drive.
Construction will take place Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm. The new traffic calming design under construction was requested by a majority of the adjacent residents and approved by the City.
Mohr Elementary School will be directly impacted by the ongoing construction however, traffic mitigation measures have been developed to provide a smooth transition into the upcoming new school year.
Signage will be posted at multiple locations within Mohr Avenue and Martin Avenue neighborhoods.
This measure will alert drivers that portions of Cameron Avenue will be closed during the construction period.
Traffic will be diverted away from Cameron Avenue as storm drain, water lines, and other underground utilities are installed requiring a restriction of street use to Cameron Avenue residents only for access to their homes.
The work will conclude with new curbs and paving of the new street section.
Parents of the surrounding neighborhood are advised to drop off and pick up children from Mohr Elementary School at 3300 Dennis Drive using Stoneridge Drive rather than Martin Avenue, due to construction and equipment delays.
Ponderosa Homes is working with the City staff to install a temporary gravel base walking path along Cameron Avenue for use by parents and children as well as the public.
Once it is safe to do, all shall be able to gain access to the Martin Avenue walking trail. The public will be notified once the path is available for use.
Ponderosa Homes has reached out ans expressed their appreciation to the public's cooperation during the construction period.
They enourage parents to warn children to avoid the construction area if they are not supervised by an adult.
