Project News for the Week of Nov. 30

All work is subject to change based on weather or scheduling conflicts.

In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, all construction activities will stop at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 25, and resume at midnight, Monday, Nov. 30.

With the new traffic alignment, eastbound US 36 traffic from Cherryvale to Federal is now on the new concrete pavement. Work continues over the next month to complete all paving and lane construction for the permanent highway configuration by Dec. 31, 2015. This work will also include final signage and lighting installation.

For pavement repair work, eastbound and westbound US 36 traffic will be temporarily realigned into a new configuration using the Express Lanes as free general purpose lanes on Dec. 4- 6. Eastbound traffic will be realigned into a temporary split-lane configuration from Interlocken to Wadsworth Parkway. Westbound US 36 traffic will be realigned into several different split-lane configurations from Federal Boulevard to 88thStreet.  All tolls will be waived during this work. All on- and off-ramps will remain open and unobstructed.  During this temporary lane configuration, westbound US 36 traffic from Federal to Sheridan Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes from 7 p.m., Dec. 4 until noon on Dec. 6. This closure is necessary for critical pavement work to be completed this year on the project.

The Phase 2 Bikeway is still under construction and will not open until spring 2016. While concrete is in place in many sections and may appear to be open for riders, the bikeway is still a work zone and closed for safety. Barricades are in place to protect cyclists and pedestrians, and local law enforcement will begin patrolling and issuing citations for use of the closed bikeway. We appreciate your patience as we work to complete this section of the US 36 Express Lanes Phase 2 Bikeway.

McCaslin Bridge Update

Median work, curb and gutter, landscaping, sign and crosswalk installations continue on the McCaslin bridge,  Nov. 30-Dec. 5. The decorative median archway will soon be placed on top of the bridge.

Eastbound and westbound US 36 will have intermittent single and double lane restrictions from Federal Boulevard to Foothills Parkway, Nov. 30-Dec 5, 9 p.m.-5:30 a.m., for final concrete pavement work. Expect significant nighttime delays. One lane will remain open at all times.
