Downtown North Ver­non is turning into a construction zone again.
Big time.

And it will remain so through the next two to three months.

That will mean some traffic nighmares for many.

Once the Madison Ave­nue streetscape work is completed, however, officials predict motorists and pedestrians will be happy - especially with the renovations of two railroad crossings that have raised the ire of many for years.

Construction of the $2.2 million streetscape project began Wednesday morning. This requires the closure of Madison Avenue from Wal­nut to Poplar streets for 60 to 90 days, though Poplar Street will remain open to traffic.

The streetscape - which includes work at Madison Avenue between Walnut Street and O&M Avenue, and O&M Avenue from Fourth to Fifth streets - is one of the city's final Stellar Community projects.
