Atlantic Avenue Construction

Please drive slow through the construction site


The City is deeply concerned about the lack of progress on the Atlantic Avenue widening project and has expressed its concerns to the general contractor, JSmith Civil, and the contractor’s bonding company, Westfield.  The City is currently in discussions with the contractor and the bonding company to determine how and when the project will be completed.  While a revised timetable for completing the project has yet to be established, City officials are working diligently to arrange for completion of the work as soon as possible.  As the City continues its discussions with JSmith Civil and Westfield, it will continue monitoring site conditions in furtherance of its commitment to ensuring that the busy Atlantic Avenue corridor is safe for the motoring public, pedestrians, adjacent landowners, and others.  Please refer back to the Atlantic Avenue web page for future updates.
