Additionally full curb removal and replacement on Davis (south side) and Hinman (east side) will occur, and new sidewalks installed. During this period we anticipate Hinman and Davis to be publically available for use in the current configuration. The south westbound drive lane of Davis will remain closed for this work (as it currently exists), and the Hinman parking lane will remain closed (as it currently exists).
Dates: Approximately Week of November 28th.

Once curbs and sidewalks are completed on Davis and Hinman, Davis will be ground and fully paved from Judson to Hinman, and an approximate 3’ strip of pavement adjacent to the east curb on Hinman will be ground and repaved. Davis is repaved full width from curb to curb, and will require closure during working hours for the grinding and paving operation.
