The construction project is expected to begin, with traffic controls, on May 10, 2021.
I posted previously about the public meeting and survey here:
From the project website:
Why is this project being done?
The existing concrete pavement is failing and in need of repair. The infrastructure repair project provides an opportunity to incorporate non-motorized transportation features along the corridor.
By reducing the number of lanes south of Stimson from 4 lanes to 3 lanes, continuous bicycle lanes can be provided along both sides of the entire South Industrial Highway corridor.
Phase 1 : Construction on the east side of South Industrial
May 1 – June 15, 2021
One lane of southbound traffic between Stimson Street and East Eisenhower Parkway will remain open. Between Stimson Street and East Stadium Boulevard, one lane of southbound and one lane of northbound will be open.
Phase 2: Construction on the west side of South Industrial
June 16 – July 31, 2021
One lane of southbound traffic between Stimson Street and East Eisenhower Parkway will remain open on the newly repaired east side of South Industrial Between Stimson Street and East Stadium Boulevard, one lane of southbound and one lane of northbound will be open. No right turns onto Stimson from South Industrial will be allowed.
How might the project affect you?
Driveway access to all businesses will be maintained within the project limits for the duration of the planned work
Given that the proposed work will be extensive and time-consuming, the work will unavoidably disrupt normal traffic and business operations along South Industrial
Vehicular traffic and bus routes in the vicinity of the project will be impacted as a result of the planned work
Dust, noise, and inconvenience will be prevalent due to the nature of the planned construction
