The private development project at N. Washington Street and E. Broad Street will start demolition soon, and with that will come temporary lane and sidewalk closures and other changes to the flow of traffic.
Parking Lot Behind 130 N. Washington Street (Clare & Don's and Thompson Italian)
In this first phase, the parking lot behind 130 N. Washington St. remains open, but the E. Broad St. entrance will close. The only entrance to the parking lot will be off of N. Washington St. via Park Pl. There is currently no left turn into Park Pl., so drivers from the north either need to find a safe way to turn around and approach from the south, or park elsewhere.
The top two levels of the Kaiser Permanente garage (about 140 Park Pl.) are open to the public on the weekends and after 5 p.m. on weeknights. This is an easy option for drivers from the north; turn right onto Park Ave. then right into the garage.
Lane and Sidewalk Closures
This phase will also create intermittent lane closures in front of the project along N. Washington St. and E. Broad St. The sidewalk along a portion of Lawton St. will also be closed temporarily.
More to Come
Future phases of the project will require more sidewalk closures, intermittent lane closures, and other temporary disruptions. Stay tuned here for updates.
