Eighth/Boardman Light To Be Installed; Some Night Closures Planned

By Beth Milligan | Feb. 29, 2020

A long-delayed traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Eighth Street and Boardman Avenue this coming week, requiring some intersection closures during overnight hours.

Work is expected to start Tuesday and be completed by Friday. On Tuesday, the intersection will be closed to all traffic between 2am and 7am. Barricades will be deployed on East Eighth Street at Lake Avenue and at Wellington Street to prevent eastbound and westbound traffic through the intersection. Barricades will also be deployed on Boardman Avenue at the alley north of East Eighth Street to prevent southbound traffic. The closure is required so crews can erect the traffic signal poles and arms safely. Detours will be provided during the closure. 

On Wednesday, the intersection will be closed to all traffic again between 2am and 7am. Barricades will again be in place at Lake Avenue, Wellington Street, and Boardman Avenue. At all other times during the project, the intersection will remain open to traffic with lane shifts. Delays can be expected in the area, with drivers advised to seek alternate routes to reduce congestion.
