Evanston & 36th (& Fremont Way)
Mowat crews have been busy pulling electrical conduits through holes bored underneath the street between Lenin's corner and the new traffic bulb across 36th, and from these two locations underneath Fremont Way to the south. Before long, Mowat will be able to replace the sidewalk and curb around Fremont's most infamous statue. A new curb will of course also be formed around the traffic bulb just the other side of 36th.
Hoffner, Fischer and Harvey Sidewalks Next
Construction work on the north side of 36th is expected to continue with replacement of the curb and sidewalks on the west side of Evanston. In addition, SDOT generously agreed to also replace the sidewalks all the way to Dayton, where the (newly trimmed) trees have pushed up the sidewalk at several joints.
Work on South Side of 36th Mostly Next Year
Only minor work on the south side of 36th (at the intersections of Evanston and Dayton) is planned until after the holiday season, to avoid impacting retail sales. Sometime after New Year's crews will begin removal and replacement of the curb and the sidewalk between Habitude and Kwan Jai Thai.
Zowie! Informational Project Kiosks
Are you unsure of how bascule is pronounced? Need a reminder about what happens during each of the 4 phases of the project? Then check out the new kiosks - near the Nickerson Street Saloon or in Lenin Square (both in place), and the one by Peet's (coming soon). You can pick up project mailers and these Fremont Frequent Flyers from there too!
Bridge Way Update
Construction between Aurora and Bridge Way North continues, with paving of the eastbound off-ramp lanes planned to start next week. A new detour route will then be established using the newly finished areas, as the work shifts westward reconfiguring the westbound off-ramp.
Halloween in Fremont
It is candy galore for costumed kids when downtown Fremont retailers throw open their doors to trick-or-treaters next Monday from 2PM to 5PM.
Bus Route Business Briefing on 11/10 @ 9AM
Metro staff will present information to the business community regarding proposed temporary bus reroutes during Phase II of construction-which will begin next summer-at the Fremont Baptist Church Social Hall (717 North 36th Street). Key information presented will be covered in a future Frequent Flyer.
