Military matters: Civil Engineers’ Corner


Construction on Mitchell Avenue
Construction will be conducted on Mitchell Avenue between Harmon Avenue and Kisling Drive (next to Bldg. 2128) March 20 through 28.

The road construction is necessary to remove the old railroad tracks in the roadway. The roadwork will block vehicular thoroughfare during the time of construction, and traffic will be detoured around the construction site.

Phasing of the construction work will be done in an effort to maintain one lane of traffic northbound at all times; southbound will be closed to traffic during this time period. Southbound traffic will be re-routed via Kisling, Lincoln and Harmon avenues. Access hours for privately owned vehicles through the East LVIS gate will be extended from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in both directions. The jogging trail and sidewalk at this location will be closed during this time. The reconstruction is needed to improve roadway safety, ride quality and reduce wear and tear on vehicles. Watch for more updates in the Kaiserslautern American.

Construction on Kapaun
Roadwork on Kentucky Street between 6th Avenue and 8th Avenue is necessary to repair potholes in the roadway.

The work will involve restricting travel on northbound Kentucky Street; one lane access will be maintained at all times. Drivers should exercise extreme caution due to proximity of heavy construction vehicles. For more information, call Garry Jaggers at 480-9475.
