In addition to previously mentioned nighttime lane closures, the corridor will be reduced to one lane in each direction from approximately NW 31st Dr to NW 22nd St for water main relocation, gravity wall replacement, and reconstruction work (clay removal). Additionally, traffic patterns will be altered from approximately NW 58th Blvd to NW 54th Ter to complete roadway widening and reconstruction. The first work zone will include partial removal of some of the medians and crape myrtles to accommodate the shift traffic; the medians and crape myrtles will be replaced at their current locations with the project. The contractor has tentatively scheduled to begin this work on September 15.
The current estimated completion date for the entire project is February, 2015.
