The contractor will begin construction of Langdon Street between North Lake Street and North Carroll Street. Langdon Street will be closed to through traffic at that time.
Langdon Street between North Park Street and North Lake Street will remain open. Intercity buses will remain on Langdon Street.
This project is expected to last until mid August.
The proposed project on Langdon St. involves resurfacing the asphalt pavement, installation of new storm sewer, replacement of the sanitary sewer main between Lake St. and Frances St., reconnection of all water services to the newer water main, and terrace improvements between Henry St. and Langdon St.
The replacement of the sanitary sewer main between Lake St. and Frances St. will also include replacement of the sanitary sewer laterals between the main (center of the street) and the curb. There are two existing water mains on Langdon St.; one main is from 1882 and the other from 1984. All properties currently connected to the 1882 water main, will be disconnected and reconnected to the 1984 water main.
The majority of the terraces along Langdon St. have already been improved with exposed aggregate concrete and pedestrian scale lighting. This project will complete what remains of the pedestrian lighting between Henry St. and Carroll St. (the previous project ended at Greek Alley, east of Henry St.), and, sod will be installed in the terraces within this area as opposed to concrete.
The project on Langdon St. will also be coordinated with private utility companies (MG&E, AT&T, Charter, etc.) as they may also perform some work on their facilities during construction.
During construction, the block between Lake St. and Frances St. will be closed in order to complete the sewer main replacement and street resurfacing. The rest of the project is currently being reviewed to determine if a travel lane (one-way only) can remain open during construction. At a minimum, Langdon St. will remain open to residents on Langdon St. or immediately off of Langdon St. (Frances St., Howard Pl, West Lakelawn).
