Construction update: Demolition of elevated Clark Street


Sidewalk closures


This week the County’s contractor installed barriers and signage for the project’s maintenance of traffic plan. As a result, the sidewalk under Clark Street on the north side of 15th Street is now closed. The sidewalk on the south side of the street remains open.


Also, a portion of the sidewalk on the west side of South Bell Street is closed between 15th and 18th Streets.


Current work activities


Crews are installing erosion and sediment controls and safety fences along the project site. They have also started selective demolition of items along the bridge structure, such as guiderails and posts.
