South High Street is open to southbound traffic. There will be no on-street parking southbound on South High Street between S.R. 161/Bridge Street and Waterford Drive for sidewalk restoration and tree installation.
All parking spaces in the northbound direction are open. The City is working with the contractor to ensure as many southbound parking spaces as possible are open as we complete the remaining items.
The following work will take place into mid-December:
- Completion of the street-facing stone walls
- Sidewalk and wall cap work and repairs (expect southbound on-street parking closures)
- Tree planting following the completion of the stone walls
Crews will begin mobilizing to begin construction on the South High Street Streetscape Enhancement Project. August 11, the southbound lane of South High Street from West Bridge Street/S.R. 161 to John Wright Lane will be closed. This will include the on-street parking spaces on the west side of the road and intermittent sidewalk closures.
Northbound traffic will remain open! Southbound traffic will be routed west to Frantz Road, then south to Rings Road, and east back to South High Street. The lane closure is expected to remain during the duration of the project, which is anticipated to be completed in early November (weather depending). Work hours are 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., but the lane closure will be in effect 24/7 for the duration of the project.
Access to side streets and City parking lots will remain open from South High Street.
During non-work hours, construction barrels and signage will be placed along the work zone for safety while northbound traffic continues to travel through the work zone. Schedules are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Should the project extend beyond November 24, a City representative will deliver another notification to your residence or business.
The project will include excavating parking spaces along west side of South High Street to John Wright Lane and installing a Suspended Pavement System, which will provide the proper soil and rooting for the new street trees that will be installed. 30 inch-high single and double well, stone retaining walls will be installed between the existing sidewalk and street to accommodate the new trees which also includes slot drains to ensure the sidewalk will drain behind the short walls. The project will repave the width of South High Street from West Bridge Street south to beyond John Wright Lane 0.07 miles, as defined by Dublin’s Engineering Division’s repaving program.
We will make every effort to reduce the amount of inconvenience to you, and we thank you for your cooperation during these necessary and important infrastructure improvements.
