Work will begin on Tuesday, August 14, to construct a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of 32nd Street and D Avenue.
The intersection will be closed for the project with detour signs going up on Monday, August 13. However, it will be open to accommodate school bus schedules only on Thursday, September 6. The project is expected to be complete after Monday, September 10.
The project will involve grading, grinding existing pavement, storm sewers, placement of new asphalt, adjusting utility appurtenances to grade, construction of the concrete center circle and curbs, sidewalks, driveways, and pavement markings.
When completed, the roundabout will include truck aprons and mountable islands, and bicycle lanes that transition to a multi-use walkway all the way around. Pedestrian improvements will include 8-foot wide sidewalks, ADA ramps, and crosswalks. Also, driveways, pavement markings, utilities work, and other work as necessary is scheduled.
Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we make these necessary improvements.
