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

September 11-19, 2014

Geo-technical crews will be working along and near 23rd and 24th Streets from September 9-16, 2014. The crews will be operating drilling rigs at various locations, between State Route 99 to just west of M Street, to obtain subsurface soil samples for determining soil conditions and engineering properties. Work will also be conducted on State Route 99 in the vicinity of the State Route 99/178 (Rosedale Highway/24th Street) interchange. This work is needed in order to advance the final design for the 24th Street Improvement Project.

The following schedule is subject to change; however, work within the residential areas will be conducted during daytime hours. Where lane closures are required, at least two lanes will remain open to traffic in each direction.

Sept. 11: Drilling locations on 23rd and 24th Streets, between C and F Streets, will require single lane and shoulder closures, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., but two through lanes will remain open in each direction.

Sept. 13: Work will take place in the median on State Route 99 near the crossing of 24th Street. This will require a closure of the northbound inside lane between the hours of 6 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Sept. 15: Motorists should anticipate nighttime lane closures along 23rd and 24thStreets, between F Street and M Street. This work will be conducted between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize traffic disruptions through the business district. A single lane and shoulder closures will be required, but two through lanes will remain open in each direction.

Sept. 16: Crews will be working on State Route 99 and on State Route 178 (24th Street), west of Oak Street and east of M Street. This work will be conducted between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize traffic disruptions; a single lane and shoulder closures will be required, but two through lanes will remain open in each direction.

Survey crews will continue to collect data for the final design of the 24th Street Improvement Project through October. Work will take place at various locations along 23rd and 24th Streets between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The majority of the survey work will occur off the street, 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

September 11-19, 2014

The Chester Avenue/H Street westbound on-ramp will continue to be closed during nighttime hours through the month of September. These closures are necessary for construction of an adjacent retaining wall on the north side of State Route 58, west of H Street. The nighttime ramp closures are expected to be in effect each week from Sunday through Thursday, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning.

Motorists should plan to use alternate routes to access State Route 58 and State Route 99. 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.

SR 178/Morning Drive Interchange

September 11-19, 2014

The contractor will be restriping the roadway near the State Route 178 and Canteria Drive intersection on Thursday or Friday, September 11-12, 2014 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The date is dependent upon the completion of freeway restriping work currently underway west of Fairfax Road.

This work will require crews to conduct one-way traffic control while work is underway. Motorists are reminded to obey flagging personnel and construction signs and to pay close attention to road construction vehicles and personnel while driving through the area.

Crews continue to work on the new bridge structure, drainage systems and roadway grading for the future freeway lanes. Work is expected to take place off the traveled roadway. The speed limit through the bypass around the construction zone is 40 mph.

Westside Parkway Phase 6C

September 11-19, 2014

A concrete pour is planned for the Renfro Road Bridge stems and soffit (bridge girders and bottom) this week. 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.
