Penn Avenue construction is back

Road work has resumed on Penn Avenue between 50th and 54th streets.

Installation of a new gas main and service connections started in mid-April. Roadway reconstruction of Penn Avenue starts in late May. When road construction begins, Penn will close to through traffic between 50th and 54th, and both 50th and 54th street will remain open.

Crews will maintain access to area homes and businesses throughout most of the work.
