Posted on February 13, 2019 at 2:21 PM by Lindsay Townsend

Project Scope: 
The McIntyre Street roadway improvements project is in the second phase of construction, between W. 56th Place and W. 58th Avenue.  Roadway improvements will include:
  • Widening of the road to four 11-foot travel lanes with a raised center median that varies between 4 and 15 feet depending on if turn lanes are installed
  • 4-foot bike lanes
  • 8-foot sidewalks
  • Two new box culverts where the Farmers Highline Canal crosses McIntyre Street
  • A new bridge at the Van Bibber Creek crossing that will include pedestrian access under McIntyre. 
See McIntyre Phase II Proposed Design (PDF)

Phase II of this project has been awarded to SEMA Construction in the amount of $7,043,611.80.

Project Update (as of February 13, 2019): 
The project start date was July 11, 2018.  The anticipated duration of the project is 14 months (through the summer of 2019).

Traffic recently shifted to the west onto new pavement. This configuration will be in place for several months while the contractor builds the new section of McIntyre Street on the east side of the road.

The contractor continues work on all three box culverts simultaneously.  Next week, crews will begin to excavate for bridge foundations on the east side of McIntyre Street.

The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph (20 mph near W. 56th Place) with fines doubled in the construction zone. Speed enforcement is being conducted by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
