Riverview Road to be Closed to Non-Local Traffic Starting Friday
The road will be closed while construction is being done on the sanitary sewer project.
Beginning Friday, Riverview Road will be closed to non-local traffic from Preston Village Drive to Chippewa Road while work is done on the street’s sanitary sewer project.
The closure was announced during a meeting on the project in June. City Engineer Gerald Wise confirmed the date of the closure in an email. It had been pushed back from the original plan.
For those who can drive on the road, there will only be one open lane. Wise said during the June meeting that school buses and emergency vehicles are considered local traffic and will be allowed to travel on the road.
Detours will be posted during the construction. Wise said in an email that the contractor will begin cutting concrete and moving equipment next week, and work on the actual sewer will begin at the end of the week or the beginning of the following week.
Wise said the contractor has six months to complete the project, but the timeline is flexible.
