Construction Project Near Sierra Middle School Starts Monday

Construction projects starting next week near Sierra Middle School, on the corner of Walnut Street and Spruce Avenue, are expected to cause delays for walkers, bus riders and parents who drop off and pick up their children.  

The work includes ADA-compliant upgrades to the sidewalks, work on the water lines and repaving of Walnut between Spruce and Hadley streets.  

According to the contractor, Highland Enterprises, the projects are expected to be completed in five to six weeks.  

Motorists in the area are reminded to slow down in construction zones, obey the posted speed limit and watch for pedestrians.
