Posted on January 13, 2020 at 2:53 PM by Lindsay Townsend

Project Scope:
The McIntyre Street roadway improvements project, third phase, will soon be underway.  Phase III will reconstruct McIntyre Street between W. 58th Avenue and W. 60th Avenue.  Roadway improvements will include:
  • Lowering the hill between W. 58th Avenue and W. 60th Avenue.  The hill will be lowered approximately 4 1/2 feet.
  • Widening of the road to four 11-foot travel lanes with a raised center median that varies between 4 and 16 feet depending on if turn lanes are installed
  • 4-foot bike lanes
  • 8-foot sidewalks
  • Reconstruction of the traffic signal at W. 60th Avenue.  New traffic signal poles with mast arms will be installed.

Phase III of this project has been awarded to Concrete Express, Inc. (CEI) in the amount of $3,364,143.00.

Project Update (as of December 13, 2019):
The general contractor is in the process of relocating a 12-inch water line on the far west side of the roadway. Temporary striping was completed earlier this week and traffic is now in a new temporary alignment on the east side of McIntyre Street.  This traffic pattern will be in place several weeks while the west side of the roadway is reconstructed.

Starting on, or shortly after Monday, December 16, W. 58th Avenue will close at the west side of the McIntyre Street intersection for approximately one week.  During the W. 58th Avenue closure, the contractor will excavate across W. 58th Avenue and install new storm sewer (drainage) pipe.  All traffic utilizing W. 58th Avenue will detour around the work zone for approximately one week.  The signed detour route utilizes Poppy Way to  W. 60th Avenue.

Road construction will continue through the winter and early spring of 2020.  Drivers should expect intermittent lane closures with alternating traffic during off-peak hours (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.). Occasional weekend work and extended hours are possible. All work is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change. A speed limit reduction to 25 mph will be enforced. Fines are double within the work zone.
