Crews have begun work on major resurfacing projects on 96th and 108th streets, which will take most of the spring and summer to complete.
First will be work on the 108th Street project, which will go from Giles Road to Harrison Street. This project will begin on Monday, March 29, in the northbound outside lane.
Crews will work one lane at a time to replace concrete panels with single lane closures. During concrete placing operations, traffic may be temporarily halted in the adjacent lane to allow for placement of materials. Flaggers are to be on scene to direct traffic in these events.
The last part of this project will involve a new asphalt surface, which could include the full closure of 108th Street late in the project.
The 108th Street project is expected to last until approximately mid-June, weather permitting.
The 96th Street project will begin after the 108th Street one is complete and will involve the complete replacement of the roadway from Harrison Street to just south of the railroad bridge.
During the reconstruction, from mid-June to mid-August, 96th Street from Harrison to Valley View Drive to will be closed and Valley View to Giles will be closed to through traffic, but anticipated to be open to local traffic only. Also, during this time, crews anticipate making concrete panel replacements from Harrison to Giles,
The rest of the 96th Street project will involve panel replacements from Giles Road to Portal Road, with completion by mid to late October. It is anticipated that work will be one lane at a time with single lane closures, as in previous panel repair phases.
The construction schedule is tentative and subject to change during the project.
