The contractor for the City of Highwood began work on reconstructing Highwood Avenue today. The crews ran into extremely poor conditions, including a very soft road base, which gave way under the weight of their heavy vehicles. The contractor has worked to put in a temporary access, but Highwood Avenue should be avoided up to Evolution until further notice. It is believed there may also be poor base conditions on other sections of Highwood so residents are asked to avoid this roadway whenever possible for the duration of the project.
