32nd Avenue Reconstruction Project Map

Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to improve quality and safety for both pedestrians and drivers for years to come. We will be updating the existing roadway, pedestrian and utility infrastructure. The more notable changes we will be making with this project include:
• New 5-lane concrete roadway section to replace the existing roadway which has reached the end of its suitable lifespan and is becoming maintenance intensive
• Downsizing the existing grass and paved medians to help create additional boulevard space for sidewalks and trees
• Upsized storm sewer drainage system to help handle flooding concerns along the corridor
• Water main improvements
• Replacing or rehabilitating the sanitary sewer pipe to extend its usable lifespan

Segment 1 - 32nd Street South to 22nd Street South

Segment 1 of the 32nd Avenue South improvement project will reconstruct 32nd Avenue South between 32nd Street South and 22nd Street South. Construction is anticipated to start the spring of 2023 and finish in the fall of 2023. This project will be constructed in four phases with motorists being detoured around the work area during construction.

Corridor Access

Access to all businesses will be available through the duration of the project. The project will be built in four phases and has the opportunity for multiple phases to run simultaneously. The work area will be closed to through traffic with traffic being detoured around the work site. Pedestrian access will be maintained on at least one side of the street and to all businesses. It is anticipated that the intersection of 32nd Avenue and 25th Street South will be closed temporarily for seven days during construction before it’s reopened to north/south through traffic.

Segment 2 - 22nd Street South through University Drive

Segment 2 of the 32nd Avenue South improvement project will reconstruct 32nd Avenue South from 22nd Street South through University Drive. Construction on Segment 2 is slated to begin in 2024 and be complete in 2025.
