Project Phasing

The Fair Oaks Bridge Rehabilitation project will be constructed in five phases that will involve several lane and road closures to complete the work.

Phase 1

Phase 1 of the Fair Oaks Bridge Rehabilitation project completely closed Hendy Ave under Fair Oaks Ave.  It also involved the closure of lane #1 in both the northbound and southbound directions on Fair Oaks Ave.  These closures allowed the contractor to relocate underground utilities, retrofit the bridge footings on Hendy Ave, and reconstruct the center median on Fair Oaks Ave.

Construction of the water and sewer lines along Handy Ave is complete, along with the retrofit of the bridge hinges and bolsters.

Status: Completed Fall 2020

Phase 2

Hendy Ave remains closed during Phase 2 of the project. One lane remains open on Fair Oaks Ave in each direction. Lane #2 on Fair Oaks Ave in the southbound direction is closed to allow for the removal and reconstruction of the barrier rail on the west side of the bridge. As relocation of storm drains and utilities nears completion, the retrofit of foundations and superstructure is ongoing.

What to expect: Through traffic is not permitted on Hendy Ave at the Fair Oaks Bridge during this time. You should plan to use an alternate route. Home Depot and businesses located along Hendy Ave are open during construction.

Fair Oaks Ave is limited to one lane in each direction during this phase. Residents should expect minor delays between East Evelyn Ave and Kifer Rd. Please allow for extra travel time.

Duration: Fall 2020 – Spring 2021

Phase 3

Hendy Ave will remain closed during Phase 3 of the project which will allow for a complete reconstruction of the roadway. One lane will remain open on Fair Oaks Ave in each direction. Lane #2 on Fair Oaks Ave in the northbound direction will be closed to allow for the demolition and widening on Fair Oaks Ave on the east side of the bridge.

What to expect: No through traffic will be allowed on Hendy Ave at the Fair Oaks Bridge during this time. You should plan to use an alternate route. Home Depot and businesses located along Hendy Ave will be open during construction.

Fair Oaks Ave will be down to one lane in each direction during this phase. Residents should expect minor delays between East Evelyn Ave and Kifer Rd. Please allow for extra travel time.

Duration: Spring 2021 – Fall 2021

Phase 4

Hendy Ave will remain closed during Phase 4 of the project. Fair Oaks will be completely closed to through traffic during two consecutive weekends. This will allow the contractor to overlay the entire width of Fair Oaks Ave with a new layer of polyester concrete.

What to expect: No through traffic will be allowed on Fair Oaks Ave between East Evelyn Ave and Kifer Rd. Residents should expect minor delays between East Evelyn and Kifer Rd. Please allow for extra travel time.

Duration: This work will occur over the course of a couple weekends in the Fall of 2021

Phase 5

Hendy Ave and Fair Oaks Ave will both be fully open during this phase.  The contractor will be doing minor site work around the project with occasional lane closures.

What to expect: The contractor will be using intermittent lane closures during the daytime to complete the project. Residents should expect minor delays between East Evelyn Ave and Kifer Rd. Please allow for extra travel time.

Duration: Summer 2021 – Winter 2021
