Construction Nearing Completion

Below please find the project update for the week of October 16 and upcoming traffic control and construction activities.

Electrical work is done at a traffic signal on Glendale .

 

Roadway Striping
The project team is working on final striping and raising utilities throughout the project. Temporary striping is used until the final layer of pavement cures, but the layout is the same as the permanent striping. The team anticipates final striping will be complete the first part of November. Utilities located in the ground are lowered during construction to avoid damage from construction activities and raised to the roadway grade to provide access after final improvements.

Traffic Control week of October 23, 2017

  • Restricted turning movements at Rock Blvd.
  • Lane closures on Glendale Ave. between McCarran Blvd. and Kietzke Lane.
  • Speed limits may be reduced in certain construction zones.
  • Bicyclists are advised to use alternate routes around the work zone.

Traffic control is weather dependent.

Open grade is a permeable surface that reduces tire splash/spray in wet weather and typically results in smoother surfaces. The high air voids trap road noise reducing tire-road noise.
