1170 & 1200 Hancock

Update June 10th


Dear Neighbors –

Construction Update:

  • As many of you are aware, this project includes improvements to Russell Park to add landscaping, upgrade utilities, and make it a safer and more pleasant street. To do this work as quickly as possible and to minimize the impacts to our neighbors, a portion of Russell Park will be closed for the summer. The street closure will be approximately from June 27th to September 2nd.
