Construction begins on both Lake Avenue and Skyline Parkway this week.

On Monday, June 23, Lake Avenue will be closed for repairs between Third Street and Fourth Street, and between Fifth Street and Sixth Street. A detour route will be indicated with signs.

Construction on Lake Avenue is scheduled to last through the first week in July.

Beginning Wednesday, Skyline Parkway and access to Chester Bowl Park from the east side will also be closed. That closure is scheduled to continue until Aug. 11. From that point, access to the park from the west will be closed until Nov. 10.

Crews will be repairing the roadway, embankment, concrete and retaining walls that were damaged during the 2012 flooding.
