Terry Avenue Adjacent to Building Cure to Be Closed to Vehicles Through May for Green Street Construction

Beginning Jan. 14, Terry Avenue, between Stewart and Virginia Streets, will be closed to vehicular traffic to construct the new Terry Avenue Green Street. The closure is expected to last through May 2019. During this time we will construct new sidewalks, repave to add access points/drop-off zones, create new planter beds and landscaping, and add a number of pedestrian benches and activation points. Throughout construction activities, pedestrian access will be maintained on one side of Terry Avenue. Please follow all street and sidewalk closed signs and pedestrian diversions, as they are in place for your safety.

Also beginning Jan. 14, normal working hours at Building Cure shift so all work and deliveries begin at 6 a.m. This will last for the duration of the viaduct closure. The exception is civil work on Terry Avenue, which will begin at 7 a.m.
