Starting around midday Friday, Nov. 15, Sanborn Boulevard will be opened for north and southbound traffic.

Some concrete sidewalk and parking lot pavement needs to be completed, so between the south sides of Seventh Avenue and the south side of Fifth Avenue, the outside northbound and outside southbound lanes of Sanborn will remain closed. This work is anticipated to be completed within a week.

Access to cross streets for Fifth and Sixth Avenues off Sanborn will remain closed while this work continues. All other cross streets to the south will have access off Sanborn.

Removal of the traffic signage is anticipated to take most of the morning.
