FAQ


when is the next public meeting?

  • Estimated for Late May or Early June 2019 when the City receives a preliminary construction schedule from the general contractor.

Is the closure for the new "bridge" between the middle school and the klahanie shopping center for the full two years or just a portion of the time? 

  • The 8-month closure is for the bridge construction only, dates of closure to be determined by contractor, work crew availability, fish windows, etc.

For the remainder of the road area covered will it be closed for two years? partially open the whole construction time with flaggers, etc?

  • The portion of road between 247th and Klahanie Dr will be closed for bridge construction, no other closures are planned (barring deliveries of large bridge structures). Construction will be occurring on the entire roadway for 2-years, with traffic control and flaggers during work hours only.

will different segments of the road be closed at different times?

  • Large bridge girder deliveries and large construction equipment and trucks may necessitate the closure of the road at different times, unfortunately, we won't have specific information until construction begins.

WHAT IS THE TOTAL DURATION OF THE PROJECT?

  • The entire project is scheduled for 2 years of construction. The bridge construction is scheduled to last 6-8 months.

WHICH SEGMENTS OF THE ROAD WILL BE CLOSED? IF YOU ARE COMING FROM THE NORTH (ALONG SOUTHBOUND IFCR), WILL YOU STILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS KLAHANIE BLVD?

  • The section of roadway between 247th and Klahanie Dr will be closed for bridge construction. You will be able to access Klahanie Dr SE from the East and North.

HOW WILL THE DRIVING PUBLIC KNOW THAT LOCAL BUSINESSES ARE STILL OPEN AND SEE REAL-TIME PROJECT INFORMATION WHILE DRIVING?

  • The project includes three (3) new portable electronic reader boards that will be available to share information with the driving public as the project is being built.

DO YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT TIMING OF DESIGN OR CONSTRUCTION FOR PHASE 2 OF THE PROJECT?

  • We have not started design for phase 2 at this time. We do not have any design or construction information at this time.
