Happy 4th of July Weekend!

This week, COP construction completed the remaining concrete curb, sidewalk replacement work, and the bulk of the temporary water piping removal. Street sweeping and clean-up continues into next week.

Next week, the east-bound slip lane on 1st Avenue to Lockwood near 9th Street will be closed through next Tuesday, July 14, for paving adjacent to the new curb, and then opened. Some minor traffic control will remain through Tuesday July 14 adjacent to newly poured concrete curb, mostly from 11th Street to 9th Street and three areas from 25th Street to 26th Street.

Permanent striping is scheduled for the week of July 13-17 throughout the entire corridor, with cross-walks on side streets to be striped the following week.

Access to businesses will be maintained.

Separately, MDT is improving North 27th Street in the project area. For information, please refer to the MDT project website
