Due to pending inclement weather, the road closure scheduled for 44th Street where it intersects with the north side of 18th Avenue has been delayed until Tuesday, May 29, 2019. This work is still anticipated to take about one (1) week and the new anticipated date for re-opening the roadway to traffic will be on or near Tuesday, June 4, 2019, weather pending.
This closure is to allow for the construction of pedestrian access ramps and pavement patching. 44th Street south of 18th Avenue will remain open to traffic.
Southbound traffic will be detoured west on 14th Avenue, South on 38th Street and then easterly on 18th Avenue. Northbound traffic will be detoured west on 18th Avenue, North on 38th Street and then easterly along 14th Avenue. See attached diagram.
The City wishes to remind motorists and pedestrians that the 18th Avenue and 38th Street resurfacing projects are ongoing and to exercise caution and expect potential delays due to the construction work. Please follow all posted construction signs for detour directions as needed and watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zones.
Two of the City’s major north-south arterial streets: 17th Street and 30th Street will remain open and free of construction activities during this project. However, there are ongoing construction activities occurring along 38th Street.
Pedestrian traffic will be maintained at all times during construction along at least one side of the roadway.
