D AVENUE UPDATE: The first base layer of asphalt has been placed and D Avenue is now open between First and Tenth streets. Intermittent daytime closures will continue through the fall, however, as crews work on the final stages of the project. In late September, crews will rebuild new pedestrian curb ramps and repave the intersection at State Street and D Avenue; at that time, the outer southbound lane on State Street at the intersection of D Avenue will be closed 24/7 for about a week.
