There are of course other projects going on but I haven’t seen any information on them. The following was posted to Councilman Parker Angelasto’s Facebook:

The Department of Public Utilities has offered the following updated information pertaining to work along Forest Hill Avenue and Semmes Avenue in the Woodland Heights and Reedy Creek areas.

  • SEMMES AVE & FOREST HILL AVE – The project limits are from Bland Street to Dundee along Forest Hill. This project is scheduled to start on February 2nd and last for 2-3 weeks. This will have a detour on Forest Hill from Roanoke to Dundee on the east bound lanes daily and will reopen each night. 3/15/2015-Work along this section continues. We have made it up to Dundee Ave and starting to cross the intersection. With all of the utilities in the intersection this is taking more time.
