The Newberry Street extension through Telulah Park to RiverHeath Way and Banta Court begins early this month. Crews will install new water, electric, sewer and storm water along with street grading and gravel.
Construction for concrete curb, gutter and pavement are scheduled for early 2014.
During construction, a detour along Newberry Street will accommodate walkers and bikers. Construction will be limited to the southwest portion of Telulah Park and have minimal impact on recreational activities, city officials said. The main entrance to the park will be closed for two days in mid-September for a new water line.
