Project: 25th Street & 13th Ave S Intersection Reconstruction
Monday, June 11, weather permitting, crews will begin work for the north portion of the road improvements on 25th Street South by extending the current 25th Street South concrete pavement repair (CPR) project work zone north of the 13th Avenue South intersection to south of the railroad crossing near 2nd Avenue South. Traffic will be carried in a single lane in each direction through a two-block section at a time on 25th Street South.
The first traffic impacts on north 25th Street South will be between 12th Avenue South to 8th Avenue South:
- Traffic will be side by side on the south bound lanes
- 9th Avenue South west side of 25th Street South – Traffic will be right in & right out access only, no northbound 25th Street South left turns or 9th Avenue eastbound left-turns will be allowed
- 9th Avenue South east side of 25th Street South – will be closed with detour route setup
- Sidewalk will be closed on east side and maintained on west side of 25th Street South
Traffic for the south portion of the 25th Street South CPR work is currently on the three inside lanes from 13th Avenue South to 17th Avenue South. Crews are repairing bad areas of the driving surface on the outside driving lanes on both sides of the roadway. One lane of traffic is open in each direction south of the intersection with left turn lanes maintained on 25th Street South.
Crews have completed all work in the intersection of 13th Avenue and 25th Street South and have removed all traffic control. For drivers, this means additional through lanes and all turn lanes are open for use in between the repair projects on 25th Street South.
Work will be complete on the last phase of the south section of the CPR project by mid-June. The north section of the CPR project will be complete by September.
In CPR projects, crews remove the bad areas of the driving surface and replace the area with new concrete. Sections of the roadway will re-open to traffic once designed strength has been achieved on the new concrete. There may be periods of time when workers are not present in the zone while concrete is curing over a period of time.
With crews working so close to moving traffic in CPR work zones, drivers are reminded to slow down, eliminate distractions and pay attention to signage. Speeds are reduced in the work zone.
