Construction projects to watch for this week

Posted: Updated:

Starting Monday construction work will begin on Southeastern Avenue from 18th Street to 26th Street. Work will include bank restoration along the Cherry Creek drainage crossing, driveway approach reconstruction, asphalt milling, and asphalt paving. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained until Wednesday, August 8th. Then on Wednesday all southbound traffic on Southeastern Avenue will be detoured to Cleveland Avenue. One lane of northbound traffic will be maintained on Southeastern Avenue at all times during the project. Think about using Cleveland Avenue as an alternate route. This project should be done by early September.

Work on North Prairie Avenue has entered Phase 2. Work is now ongoing on North Prairie Avenue between West Sixth Street and West Eighth Street. Through traffic will be detoured east one block to North Summit Avenue. Phase 2 of the project is anticipated to be completed within three weeks.

Starting Monday Western Avenue from 12th Street to 22nd Street and 26th Street to 41st Street will be closed for asphalt milling and paving. Cross street intersections at 18th Street, 22nd Street, and 26th Street will remain open during the project. Local access to residences will be maintained when possible. Traffic should use alternative routes on Kiwanis Avenue or Grange Avenue. Weather permitting, the work is anticipated to be completed in the evening of Friday, August 10th.

Expect some changes to the major ongoing work on Marion Road. Head to head traffic has been switched onto the new pavement on Marion Road. Now from 33rd Street to Berkshire Boulevard, traffic will be traveling head to head on the new concrete pavement. All driveways and intersections on the west side of Marion Road between 33rd Street and Berkshire Boulevard are open. Starting Monday, 39th Street will be closed west of Marion Road to allow the Contractor to start paving the remaining portion of the southbound lanes. So you'll want to still keep this area in mind.

Starting Tuesday asphalt crack sealing will begin on Minnesota Avenue from Second Street to Fourth Street. Lanes will be closed for maintenance, but traffic will be maintained in all directions at all times. Traffic delays are expected. The work is only supposed to take a day, but you still might want to think about avoiding this area.

Also starting Tuesday various lane closures will occur along North Minnesota Avenue between Russell Street and Benson Road to allow crews to do some road repairs. Traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times. However the city says traffic delays are expected. Weather permitting, the work is expected to last four weeks.

Starting Thursday at 9:00a.m. construction of the Sioux River South Sanitary Interceptor Sewer Replacement project will require the closure of South Minnesota Avenue between Interstate 229 and Lotta Street. South Minnesota Avenue should reopen to traffic on Monday, August 20th before the morning commute. The city says you should expect to use the posted detour routes on 57th Street, Western Avenue, and 41st Street.
