  • Montague Roadway Extension Update

Construction of the Montague Roadway Extension is underway.  A section of Forrest Avenue and all associated parking spaces south of Johnson Science Tower will be blocked.  In addition, a portion of the sidewalk near the corner of Montague and Golden Eagle Avenue will be closed for the duration of the project.  The project will begin with underground power work, followed by demolition of the Printing Center.  When finished, the roadway will feature a single-lane extension that will run one-way, from east to west, behind the Power House Restaurant, linking Forrest Avenue to Montague Boulevard. The project will also include the addition of sidewalks and metered parking spaces.  Please be observant of directional signage and stay outside of the boundaries of the construction fence. The project is scheduled to be completed in spring 2021, weather dependent.
