Oakland Avenue Reconstruction To Expand Work Zone

Oakland Avenue Construction


CARBONDALE – In an effort to complete the Oakland Avenue reconstruction project substantially earlier than anticipated, the construction area will expand from Freeman Street to Hill Avenue beginning June 1, 2020. Access to Oakland Avenue from streets south of Freeman Street to Chautauqua will be unavailable.

Access to Oakland Avenue from College Street, Schwartz Street, and Cherry Street are anticipated to be open at the end of this week but construction will continue from Walnut Street to Freeman Street to complete sidewalks and other construction items.

It is strongly suggested to avoid travel in the Oakland Avenue area unless necessary.
