How long will Washington be closed?

Curt of Grand Haven asked, “When is that Centertown project going to be done? It’s a real nuisance not being able to use Washington Avenue to get to that area and downtown.”

It is scheduled to be done by the end of June, city officials said.

The work began last Monday on the Centertown reconstruction project, which will bring about utility and streetscape improvements on Washington Avenue between Beacon Boulevard and Seventh Street.

Through-traffic won’t be allowed to drive on Washington during construction and detours have been posted. Public parking lots will be accessible from Franklin, Columbus and Seventh streets.

“We’re going to maintain traffic at Eighth Street and traffic at Washington and Seventh as much as we can,” Assistant City Manager Sam Janson told the Tribune for a story earlier this month.

All it said was to be finished by june, then they said sometime this summer, in the mean time, we have to avoid the area and exit out to beacon blvd and take a street you need from there, can not be that inconvenient because the construction is only two blocks


How in the world can this take until the end of june? If it was the prime tourist season they would get it done in a week.
Who cares about the locals? No one that I can see.


In a week,impossible.
