City Postpones Crabtree Boulevard Construction

Construction on Crabtree Boulevard scheduled to begin today has been postponed to March 20 due to expected low temperatures. Once construction begins, the road will be closed until late June/early July 2017 to make necessary repairs and improvements to the street’s culvert. Crabtree Boulevard is located off of Capital Boulevard.

A detour will be in effect for the duration of the project and will direct traffic to Yonkers Road and Raleigh Boulevard. Access to businesses and residences in the project area will remain available throughout construction.

This project will repair structural deficiencies underneath the entrance of the stormwater pipe that runs under the road and address ongoing erosion that is causing water to flow off its natural course. The intent of this culvert rehabilitation is to prevent further erosion of the storm drain to ensure continued public safety and low impact to water quality.
