McIntyre Street Phase III (W. 58th Avenue to W. 60th Avenue)

Posted on April 1, 2020 at 9:38 AM by Lindsay Townsend

Project Scope:
The McIntyre Street roadway improvements project, third phase, 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 April 1, 2020):
The general contractor, Concrete Express, Inc. (CEI),   plans to place the first two lifts (layers) of asphalt on the east side of McIntyre Street during the week of April 6. This phase of paving is expected to take approximately two days to complete.

Drivers can expect intermittent lane closures, flagger control and an increase in construction equipment entering and exiting the work zone. Frequent changes to lane configurations are expected during and after paving operations.

Remaining work includes: 
  • activating the new signal system at W. 60th Avenue
  • removing old signal poles
  • constructing ADA-compliant curb ramps at W. 60th Avenue
  • placing sidewalk on the east side of McIntyre Street
  • constructing the stamped concrete median island
The final layer of asphalt is scheduled for placement during the week of April 20. Permanent lane striping will be placed several days after paving. Project completion is anticipated in late April, weather-permitting.

See CEI's Construction Update Flyer

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.
