This week the project team began removing the old asphalt from the I-580 ramps west to Kietzke Lane.  The team is working on the south side of the roadway and is scheduled to pave the week of August 21. After paving the south side, crews will move east towards Galletti Way and then move to the north side of the roadway between Walmart and Kietzke Lane for removals around August 31.  When crews are working on the south side, the I-580 southbound off-ramp will be closed. I-580 and Glendale Avenue/Second Street southbound on-ramp and both the northbound on and off-ramp will be open.

See the map below which shows the suggested detour routes as the southbound on-ramp exiting  the Colony and both the northbound on and off-ramp between I-580 and Glendale Avenue/Second Street will close 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

However, the southbound I-580 off ramp getting into the Colony will remain open during this time.

Also, major construction will continue on Second Street/Glendale Avenue between Kietzke Lane and Galletti Way. The road will remain open to traffic, but both directions of traffic will first be shifted to the north side through the road work zone.
