WHAT:

This Friday, April 7 by 3:30 p.m., North Bumby Avenue between Colonial and Corrine Drive will be fully reopened for traffic.

The roadway was closed in Spring 2015 to facilitate the North Bumby Avenue Improvement Project.  The project included reconstructing the road, installing a new stormwater collection system to improve drainage and reduce flooding, planting more than 125 trees, constructing a new 10-foot wide multi-use path, adding new sidewalks and crosswalks, including a raised crosswalk at Illinois and Bumby, and installing wayfinding signage.

A community celebration of the opening of the roadway and the new off-street multi-use path is planned for Saturday, April 15that 9:30 a.m.
