Third Avenue Reopened and Improved

As of Weds, Oct. 26th, Third Avenue is open to vehicles and pedestrians. Thanks to a grant from the Department of Ecology, the City was able to install new utilities, sidewalks and pervious pavement along the edges of the roadway to intercept stormwater runoff from the road and sidewalks. A sand filter was installed below the pavement to treat the stormwater. This new pavement technology is a great example of low impact development, which helps keep toxins from our streets from entering our water supply.

Traffic Impact on Malloy Avenue Starting Thursday April 27th

Thursday April 27th, Friday April 28th and Monday May 1st 8:30am-5:00pm. Work will take place on Malloy Ave and Maria Terrace. While the road will remain open, traffic control and speed reduction devices will be in place. This work is weather dependent with dates subject to change. This traffic revision is necessary to allow for a private developer to complete installation of a utility and storm crossing.
