Work continues on the median from the soccer field entrance to 12th Street, which includes the installation of decorative concrete, landscaping, and a pedestrian crossing at Canal Street.
Crews are progressing on foundation work in support of widening the bridge over Rapid Creek.
Removals continue on the north side of Omaha Street, from Rapid Creek west to Deadwood Avenue. Work on storm sewer has begun.
Motorists are asked to be aware of suddenly slowing and merging traffic, changing work zone locations, reduced speeds through the work zone, and construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lanes.
Additional information will be provided as phasing, access, and traffic control changes with the progression of the project.
