Chaos is Coming! Preparing for Construction on 78th Street

Many of our residents here are very familiar with 78th street. If you want to quickly exit the property and head down towards the hospital, escape the rush of Pacific St or visit our neighbors at Villa Vinee, you take 78th. If you live on Pierce St, and want the quickest way out of the community, you go down 78th. Also, and unfortunately so, if you want to drag race down a street, you pull off from 78th and head on down to Pierce St, whizzing through with reckless abandon (this is not advised).

 

It is no secret that this street is an important thoroughfare for our residents and drivers alike. It is a wonderful side street that allows a little bit of overflow to avoid the major traffic on streets like Mercy or Pacific. However, there are ominous murmurs in the distance that…

 

CONSTRUCTION

 

… is on the way.

*Gasp*

How will we all ever make it through? What will that mean for the community? Who would ever do something so heinous?

For now, our office can tell you that work will start around the 27th of January. At that time, northbound lanes on 78th will be closed as MUD works on gas and water lines that run down the length of the road from Bergen to the end of Pacific Gardens. This work is expected to be ongoing into the Spring, but an end date has not yet been confirmed. We also know that work will be conducted by the city to build a sidewalk that spans the length of the previous work. Along with this, new retaining walls will be erected on the west side of the property. However, this will be taking over even more of the street, and will be lasting from Spring to late Summer (again, no official end date to say).

For us here in the community, we will be losing the garages West 17-43. This is incredibly unfortunate, although there is some good news to come out of this. With their removal, we will be replacing them with some standard outside parking, and new electric garages! All of this is very tentative for now, as we are still waiting for a greater idea on the schedule of this work, but for now, their is some good, and some bad, that is heading this way.

We ask that everyone in the community, as well as our neighbors nearby, be vigilant when using 78th for the next few months. It makes us very sad to see this happen, but also overjoyed to hear that we will be getting a new sidewalk, and some fun renovations to our already beautiful property. Please hang in there with us, and we will continue to try to make all of our residents/guests lives as smooth and convenient as possible while this work is on-going.

For more information, please continue to check in here. Thank you all for being our wonderful residents. We are all in this together, and once it is all done, 78th and our community will be even better than they were before!
