Cedar Valley Nature Trail Closure During Flood Control Project Update | January 7, 2021
Starting today, the Cedar Valley Nature Trail will be closed from 10th Street NE, along McLoud Run, and south to the Cedar Lake Loop located at the northwest corner of Cedar Lake as permanent flood control efforts continue in the area north of Cedar Lake.  A detour has been established along 10th Street NE. Work is currently underway on the first phase of flood control at the Shaver Road NE bridge, over McLoud Run (aka Cold Stream). 

The trail segment in this area will remain closed for approximately the next three years as work is completed at the Shaver Road bridge and levee construction begins. The trail closure is associated with the work taking place at Shaver Road, which will include elevating the bridge and constructing a trail underpass.

O Avenue NW Construction Update | January 1, 2021

O Avenue remains closed to through traffic between 20th Street and 26th Street. Closure barricades at both ends are staggered to allow access to residents. Please be alert for construction equipment and workers if you have to drive into the closure area.  

Underground work on O Avenue NW will continue into winter as long as weather allows work to be performed safely. Installation of the reinforced box culvert in the south shoulder is almost to 26th Street, and eventually it will extend to 30th Street. Storm sewer between 20th Street and 24th Street is expected to be completed early next week.  When the storm sewer is completed, the crew will begin installing water main on the north shoulder going west from 24th Street.  Work areas for water main installation will be staggered to allow safe access to residents. 

Center Point Road / 29th Street NE Intersection Open
Improvements at Center Point Road NE and 29th Street NE are substantially completed, and the intersection is now open to traffic.

This completes the majority of the work for the Center Point Road and 29th Street Paving for Progress project. Temporary lane shifts may occur in the days ahead as crews complete final driveway work. Minor cleanup work and the installation of permanent pavement markings will occur next spring, with minimal traffic impacts.

The project started in March and included fully reconstructing the intersection and replacing traffic signals, adding medians on 29th Street near the I-380 ramps, and conversion to two-way traffic on Center Point Road between J Avenue and 29th Street.

1st Avenue / CeMar Trail Construction Update | December 11, 2020
With the completion of the temporary travel lanes, crews will begin the process of demolishing the old railroad bridge on 1st Avenue (between 29th – 31st St) that was backfilled years ago. This work will begin early next week, and will be completed with large earth-moving and excavation equipment. 

During this time, 1st Avenue will remain open one lane each direction, using the temporary travel lanes recently completed. Business access will be accessible via side-streets. 

Once crews have demolished the old bridge, they will begin utility improvements and preparations for the new box culvert that will serve as the pedestrian underpass. The contractor will continue working on these items for as long as winter weather allows.  

The east leg of the intersection at 1st Avenue and 29th Street (Walgreens side) remains closed; the west leg of the intersection (Five Seasons Tire side) is right-in, right-out only. 

Bowling Street SW Construction Update | December 9, 2020
Crews have completed railroad work just north of 49th Avenue Drive SW, and have made progress on pavement repairs at the Prairie Creek bridge. Bridge work will continue for the next few weeks with a lane reduction in this area, which will be restored before the end of the year. 

All other work has wrapped up for the year and the majority of traffic control has been removed for the season.  The project will resume in the spring and is scheduled to be completed in 2021. 

Bridge Repairs Begin on C Avenue NE; Cottage Grove Avenue SE
Two bridge maintenance projects will begin this week. Starting Tuesday, December 1, bridge repair work will be underway on C Avenue NE, between Brentwood Drive and Teakwood Lane. Starting on Wednesday, December 2, work will begin on Cottage Grove Avenue SE, between 34th Street and Indian Hill Road. Lane reductions will be in effect during both projects, for approximately two weeks. Work includes joint repair and other maintenance. These are two of several bridge maintenance projects scheduled for winter 2020 – spring 2021, focusing on periodic maintenance such as joint repair, pavement, or railing improvements.
