News Flash East Side Paving and Drainage

Beginning Monday, April 24 construction will begin on the East Side Paving & Drainage Project Package One.  

Package One is broken down into 2 phases. 

  • Phase One: Removal of the pavement, storm sewer pipe upsizing followed by repaving the roadway.  
  • Phase Two: Removal & replacement of pavement. 

Work Zone: North side of the 3000 & 3100 Blocks of University Blvd. – Residents can expect work to start at Buffalo Speedway on University Blvd and move east toward Belmont St.  This will be a rolling work zone that will continue to progress to Kirby Drive. 

Within this work zone the contractor will begin by removing the pavement. Once removed the existing storm sewer pipe will be removed and replaced with a larger storm sewer pipe. The roadway will then be repaved.  

Driveway Access: Driveway access within the current work zone will be impacted for 4 - 6 weeks at minimum. Crews will remove all driveway aprons and will be replaced with a light broom finish, no pigment, color, tile, brick, or patterning shall be placed or installed. Prior to removal, notification will be provided ahead of time to move cars out of garages and driveways. 

Traffic Control: The entire length of University Blvd from Buffalo Speedway to Kirby Drive will be transitioned to one-way traffic eastbound with the westbound lane closed. Westbound traffic will be detoured via Rice Blvd.
