Reith-Riley and the City of Hobart want to advise residents of the beginning of the Safe Routes to School Project to install sidewalks and ADA crossings along 8th Street from Lincoln Street to Fleming Street to the Hobart Middle School. This project will provide ADA-compliant sidewalks along the route of children walking to the Middle School. This project was undertaken to install the missing segments of sidewalks that could have forced children to walk in the street.
Reith-Riley will begin working on 6/26/2020. For the protection of their workers they will establish “Local Traffic” road closures along 8th Street from Water Street to Lincoln St during the work hours of 7:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday. They will detour traffic at 8th Street at Water Street north to 7th Street and then through to Lincoln Street.
This project is scheduled to take 6 weeks.
