Project: 25th Street & 13th Ave S Intersection Reconstruction
Beginning Monday, May 14, crews will end the winter suspension and commence the second year of slated project work for the roadway rehabilitation and reconstruction project at the intersection of 25th Street and 13th Avenue South.
Starting Monday morning, motorists will drive through an active work zone and crews will begin building the permanent center medians in the center of roadways surrounding the intersection.
Throughout the intersection, for drivers in all directions:
- One driving lane with left-hand turning lanes will be open – motorists will shift to the outside driving lane on their respective side during median work
- Median lane will be closed to traffic
- The intersection will not fully close to traffic
- At times certain traffic movements will be limited to right-in and right-out in the zone to help with traffic flow out of business driveways in the intersection.
It will take about two to three weeks to complete the intersection rehabilitation.
Beginning the week of May 21, crews will start on the last phase of the project work. Phase four consists of concrete pavement repair (CPR) work on 25th Street South from 13th Avenue South to 17th Avenue South.
One lane of traffic will remain open in each direction north of the intersection. Traffic will initially be shifted to the inside three lanes then shift to the outside lanes with left turn lanes maintained. In CPR projects, crews remove the bad areas of the driving surface with new concrete. Sections of the roadway will re-open to traffic once designed strength has been achieved on the new concrete. Work will be complete in early August.
This project has completed the reconstruction of the 13th Avenue and 25th Street S intersection corner by corner to improve the ride, pedestrian amenities, and safety throughout the area.
Speeds are reduced in the work zone, so drivers are reminded to slow down, eliminate distractions and pay attention to signage, as crews may be working near traffic.
