There is plenty of street car construction to kick off 2013 and there are plenty of new delays that people should be aware of as they head back to work today.
Starting today Stone Avenue will be reduced to just one lane from Alameda to Broadway, it will remain this way through Saturday, so plan some extra time if your commute goes through that way.
Also starting today, Broadway between Granada and Scott will be down to one lane; this restriction will be taking place for the next few months, while crews install new water lines, utilities, and tracks for the street car.
Southbound Church Avenue will also be closed, starting today, between Congress and Broadway as they put in new water lines in that area and work on the traffic signals. This particular section of Church will remain closed for the next several weeks as construction continues.
There are plenty of new delays in the downtown area to start the new year, so plan ahead and plan on the commute possibly taking longer than normal.
