McIntyre Street Phase II (West 52nd Avenue to 60th Avenue)

Posted on July 16, 2019 at 12:36 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 July 12, 2019): 
The project start date was July 11, 2018. The anticipated duration of the project is 14 months (through the summer of 2019).

Starting at 5:30 a.m. on Friday, July 19, McIntyre Street will be closed just north of West 55th Avenue to south of West 58th Avenue until 5:30 a.m. on Monday, July 22. This full closure will allow the contractor to expedite asphalt paving of McIntyre Street. Crews will perform final grading and construct the top layer of asphalt on some of the corridor. Implementing a full closure over the weekend reduces prolonged traffic impacts on weekdays. All through traffic is prohibited except for emergency responders. Access to adjacent parcels will be maintained and a signed detour route will be provided.

The east half of Van Bibber Creek bridge construction complete!  The steel reinforced concrete bridge deck was placed May 31.  See the short video of crews placing concrete.  Bridge approaches were placed after the bridge deck and traffic is now traveling across the new structure.

The contractor will complete final restorative landscaping work later this summer.

Xcel Energy is scheduled to install two new Light-emitting diode (LED) street lights at the intersection of W. 56th Place and McIntyre Street in early August 2019. 

All work is dependent on weather conditions and other construction scheduling.

The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph with fines doubled in the construction zone. Speed enforcement is being conducted by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
