Pavers and other construction workers have begun work on part of Riverside Avenue.


The eastbound lane on the west side of McKinley Avenue is closed as the median is expanded and more crosswalks and ramps are added.


The lane should reopen by July 19, but Jay Seal, concrete foreman for E&B Paving, said they are trying to reopen earlier.


He said the “in-and-out” job will not restrict much access on the street.


“There’s only one side they’re keeping closed,” Seal said. “They’re keeping traffic going through for bus routes and everything else.”


Access to the Arts and Journalism Building parking lot will remain unaffected.


Seal had one piece of advice for anyone in the area.


“Just slow down and watch for people,” he said.
