Posted on October 10, 2019 at 10:42 AM 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 September 20, 2019): 
The project start date was July 11, 2018. The anticipated duration of the project is 14 months (through October 2019).

Final paving on McIntyre Street between W. 56th Place and W. 58th Avenue was completed September 16 and 17.  Final roadway striping will occur Saturday, September 21.  Lane closures and an abundance of traffic control devices (cones and barrels) will be in place as the epoxy paint is sprayed and dries. Flaggers will assist drivers through the construction zone. 

The contractor will complete improvements in the Van Bibber Creek drainage channel and final landscape restoration throughout the construction zone the remainder of this month.  The contractor will also be finishing any other punch list items the remainder of this month and early next month.  Lane closures can be expected as the contractor finishes work. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office will continue speed enforcement during and after the project. 

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.

Note that the next phase (Phase III) of McIntyre Street widening from W. 58th Avenue to W. 60th Avenue is currently in the bid review / contractor award process.  Construction is expected to begin early October 2019.  See the website update for more information regarding the Phase III widening project.
