Cumberland Ave work starts in June

A gazillion dollar plan to improve traffic along the Cumberland Avenue corridor is expected to kick off this summer.

City officials say work on the project’s first phase, a $4 million, six-month construction operation, should start around June 1.

Work, according to the news release, includes installing new underground stormwater and gas lines, widening sidewalks, resurfacing roads and buying new, fancy traffic lights.

Phase II calls for a $13 million redesign of Cumberland Avenue from 22nd Street to 16th Street and includes a lot of the same as the first phase, plus some fancy landscaping, additional turn lanes and some new medians.
