91st Street Improvement Project Begins Week of April 29

Pending weather or unforeseen circumstances, construction to improve 91st Street from Wolf’s Crossing Road to Schoger Drive will begin the week of April 29, 2019. Work is expected to be complete by mid-July 2019.

To accommodate construction, vehicular thru traffic will be detoured around 91st Street using Normantown Road and Schoger Drive. During primary working hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., 91st Street between Wolf’s Crossing and Schoger will be closed to thru traffic. Local traffic, including delivery trucks, will be allowed to access 91st Street traveling westbound from Schoger Drive. After 5 p.m., 91st Street will re-open to one lane of westbound only thru-traffic.

The 91st Street Improvement Project will bring 91st Street between Wolf’s Crossing Road and Schoger Drive up to City standards, which will improve the motorist and pedestrian experience in the area. Work includes constructing one lane on 91st Street in each direction with a striped median, installing curbs, removing the ditch on the south side of the roadway and installing sidewalk, installing storm sewer for improved drainage and installing street lighting.

Access to businesses in this area will be maintained at all times. Work will occur between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Motorists traveling in this area are encouraged to use caution and be aware of flaggers and other construction workers.
