On October 8, work to support RiverRenew will begin in an open lot just south of Eisenhower Circle. The lot, referred to as the Holland Lane Lot, is bounded by Eisenhower Circle to the north, Limerick Street to the south, Bartholomew Street to the west, and Holland Lane/Hooffs Run to the east.
The Holland Lane Lot will serve as an area to store materials and equipment, as well as temporary office trailers, for the RiverRenew Tunnel Project, which is anticipated to start in December 2020. The new tunnel will be constructed from two shafts immediately east of Hooffs Run on AlexRenew’s campus. Due to the limited area on AlexRenew’s campus, the Holland Lane Lot will serve as additional area to be utilized during construction. Please note that no permanent structures will be constructed within the Holland Lane Lot and this work is not associated with residential or commercial development in the area. The lot is solely needed to support temporary construction operations through 2025.
The Holland Lane lot will be surrounded by a fence and secured with gates. You may see trucks bringing large amounts of gravel to the lot throughout October. This gravel will be spread across the site to provide a firm surface for material and equipment storage. The lot, Holland Lane, and Limerick Street (just east of Bartholomew Street) will be closed to public vehicular and pedestrian traffic through 2025.
Stay safe and aware!
Work associated with preparing the lot will occur for the next few weeks between 7 AM and 6 PM, Monday through Friday. Please exercise caution when traveling near this area and be mindful of your surroundings, as there will be an increase in construction vehicles and activity.
