Project: 52nd Avenue Reconstruction Project
Weather permitting, Saturday, July 20 crews will fully close Veterans Boulevard intersection again and reopen 53rd Street South intersection to traffic in the early afternoon. The full closure of Veterans Blvd will allow crews to pave 52nd Avenue South from west of the Drain 27 bridge through the Veterans Blvd intersection early Monday, July 22nd.
Crews will move paving equipment over the 53rd Street South intersection and this will remain as gravel to maintain business and residential access during work in this area.
No other traffic control will change for residential and business access to the west of Veterans Blvd. Drivers will continue to use the temporary bypass road at Veterans Blvd to access the mainline of 52nd Avenue South and travel west to 53rd Street South.
After the closure, motorists will encounter the following access to businesses:
North business access:
- Veterans Blvd to 51st Street South to 53rd St S (the roundabout intersection just north of 52nd Ave S)
- Veterans Blvd temp access road, to mainline of 52nd Avenue to Rocking Horse Road
South business access:
- East loop: Veterans Blvd to 51st Street South to 53rd St S (the roundabout intersection just north of 52nd Ave S) to 53rd Ave S business loop
- West loop: Veterans Blvd temp access road, to mainline of 52nd Avenue to 53rd Ave S business loop
The next 52nd Avenue closure will be between west of Veterans Blvd through Rocking Horse Road. The phase will begin once access is restored through 63rd Street and Veterans Blvd intersections in a couple weeks. The east side of the work zone from Veterans Blvd to over Drain 27 is slated to open to one driving lane in each direction to 45th Street South intersection by mid-August. Both are weather and road condition permitting.
**Please remember all schedules are tentative and weather dependent.
