Station Square is about to undergo a major renovation.
According to a community notice sent on April 6, the Forest Hills Gardens Corporation Board of Directors informed residents that the entire square east of Continental Avenue will be closed to all vehicular traffic due to the renovation project.
There are several phases to the renovation which will involve more than just the restoration of the road surface. According to the notice, all public utilities will be upgrading their infrastructure as the bricks are removed and the roadway is opened.
And after years of repair work that caused uneven bricks, this renovation will also level out the road.
The renovation is slated to begin mid April and will continue throughout the rest of the year. The square will be closed off to all vehicular traffic throughout the entire time of the project.
“This project has been on the drawing board for many years and we are excited to embark on this unprecedented event for our community,” the notice stated. “We understand that this will be an inconvenience but after much discussion, it was decided there was no other way to safely proceed with this project if the square was not closed to the public.”
