  • Kenmore Construction will continue working on the south side of Summit Street between Whitehall Boulevard and Fraternity Circle.

  • Flaggers will be directing traffic in this area and there will be delays at times. 
     
  • One-way, one-lane eastbound is scheduled to begin in March in the first phase area. Access to buildings and parking lots in the construction area will be maintained at all times.
