Construction starting again, September 4, 2018
Prior to our shutdown over the months of July and August, crews finished replacing underground utilities and road construction from 5 Street to College Lane S.W. Starting September 4, we will be closing from College Lane to 8 Street S.W. including the intersection of 7 Street and 17 Avenue S.W., as well as from 8 Street to 9 Street S.W. to continue our work on this project.

Once the work at the intersection of 7 Street and 17 Avenue S.W. is complete and the intersection reopened, we will be closing the intersection of 8 Street and 17 Avenue S.W. to both replace underground utilities and rebuild the road. Further details will be provided once this closure is scheduled.

The goal is to complete everything up to 9 Street S.W. prior to winter 2018.
