  • The closure will not restrict access to driveways along Rawlinson Avenue.
  • The laydown area will include trailer office space, facilities, and material and equipment storage.
  • View the permit for the work.


  • Beginning mid-September 2016, Rawlinson Avenue will be closed for approximately 48 months (four years).
