An intersection replacement at Aspen and Everglade streets in Gainesville is expected to mark a full two weeks and cause a traffic reroute.
The closing begins Tuesday, Sept. 3. Public Services Director Ron Sellman the build of a new intersection is the last of a few conducted in the city during past months, and should improve drainage. Drivers will observe warning signs plus directions for alternate routes in the area.
“We’re including some curb and gutters that need to be replaced,” Sellman said. “The whole intersection isn’t draining properly and we’re replacing it so the water can flow like it should.”
And unlike the recent brick revamp of the intersection at Broadway and Dixon streets, he added, this one will remain concrete.
“That intersection is deteriorated and so it needs to be replaced and we have it set in our budget to replace it,” Sellman said, gauging the cost in the range of $20,000. “We’re trying to get that done before the end of our budget year.”
