The improvement and expansion of a portion of North Union Avenue is scheduled to begin in mid-November.
Citizens are invited to a public pre-construction meeting to learn more about the project, the construction process and timetable. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. Monday in the Roswell Convention and Civic Center’s Nancy Lopez Room. The convention center is at 912 N. Main St.
The project will occur between West 19th Street and West Country Club Road and will expand that section of North Union Avenue from two lanes to four lanes. The project is expected to be completed by mid-April, depending on weather conditions during the work.
With the exception of some possible brief time periods, residents of that area will have access to their streets throughout the project. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic to alternate routes while North Union Avenue is under reconstruction.
In addition to adding another traffic lane on each the northbound and southbound sides of that section of North Union — which already is a four-lane road to the south of the project area — the project will install curbs and gutters, as well as sidewalks. There will also be landscaped water detention ponds installed on the east side of the road.
The general contractor for the $2.5 million project is Carlsbad-based Constructors, Inc.
