Construction Update


Stay alert while driving through workzones and follows detour signs. Watch for construction personnel, equipment and vehicles leaving a construction site and merging with traffic. Motorists should use alternate routes when possible. No pedestrians are allowed in construction work areas for safety reasons. Slow for the cone zone!

 

24th Street Improvement Project

July 25-Aug 1, 2014

Survey crews will continue working on 23rd and 24th Streets for the next two weeks through August 1, 2014. Crews will be working between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The majority of the work will occur off the streets, but crews may need to be in and around the travel lanes for brief periods of time. Significant impacts to traffic are not anticipated.

 

SR 58 Gap Closure Project

July 25-Aug 1, 2014

Chester Avenue/H Street westbound on-ramp: Intermittent daytime lane closures are anticipated next week for the Chester Avenue/H Street westbound on-ramp as the contractor continues work on the nearby retaining wall. During the closures, motorists can use the State Route 58/Union Avenue Interchange, located approximately one mile to the east, or continue west on Brundage Lane for approximately one mile to access northbound or southbound State Route 99.

 

Cottonwood Road at State Route 58 will be closed during daytime hours on Monday and Tuesday. This closure is necessary to allow for work on the newly constructed bridge sections. This work will take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., each day. Motorists can use either Union Avenue or Washington Street for north/south access across the freeway.

 

State Route 58 westbound lanes: Motorists should anticipate nighttime lane closures on westbound State Route 58, Sunday through Tuesday, between Cottonwood Road and State Route 99. The contractor will be restriping the roadway and placing concrete barrier rail in preparation of median excavation for the new travel lanes. This activity will take place between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m., each night. One westbound travel lane will remain open to traffic while operations are underway. Two travel lanes will be open to traffic during daytime hours.

 

SR 178/Morning Drive Interchange

July 25-Aug 1, 2014

The contractor for the State Route 178/Morning Drive Interchange project will be removing a traffic signal pole located at the State Route 178 and Bedford Green Drive intersection next week. This work is off the roadway and interruptions to traffic are expected to be limited.

 

Crews may conduct traffic control as needed with the use of flagging personnel, Monday through Wednesday, July 28-30, 2014 between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., each day. Motorists are reminded to obey flagging personnel and construction signs and to pay close attention to road construction vehicles and personnel while driving through this area.

The speed limit through the bypass around the construction zone is 40 mph.

 

Westside Parkway Phase 6C

July 25-Aug 1, 2014

Renfro Road remains closed to traffic during bridge construction. Motorists can detour around the closure via Allen Road and Brimhall Road. The contractor is working at various locations along the new alignment, but no additional impacts to traffic are anticipated.
