Johnson Ave NW Project Starting

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin Thursday, April 5, on the Johnson Avenue NW Paving for Progress project, weather permitting.

Work this year will focus on the section between Midway Drive and just east of Jacolyn Drive; road closures will be in effect on Johnson Avenue while work is underway. Through traffic will be detoured via Edgewood Road, 16th Avenue and West Post Road

The full project will stretch from 1st Avenue to Midway Drive. Improvements include:

  • Reconstruction of the roadway and transitioning it from four lanes to three lanes (one lane in each direction, with a dedicated center turn lane)
  • Water main replacement and utilities
  • Sidewalk and curb ramps
  • Bike lanes
  • A roundabout at Johnson Avenue and Wiley Blvd, and at Johnson Avenue and Jacolyn Drive
Construction of the roundabout at Johnson Ave and Wiley Blvd will take place this summer when school is out of session. The project will continue in 2019 between Jacolyn Drive and 1st Avenue, and be completed fall of 2019.
