PROJECT UPDATES

 July 3, 2018:

Aldeah Avenue closing at Broadway intersection July 10-11; lane restrictions planned on Broadway, July 9-10

APLEX, Inc. plans to install a median island on Broadway near Aldeah, July 9-10, and close access to Aldeah, July 10-11, to modify the intersection and repair the pavement. When Aldeah opens back up on July 12, weather permitting, it will be a right-in/right-out only intersection at Broadway.  These changes were approved as part of the Bike Boulevard Project.

Broadway will remain open. However, lanes may be temporarily narrowed during some periods. At other times, only one lane will be open in alternating directions with flaggers present to direct traffic.

“The flagging operations should be done during off peak hours, early morning and mid day primarily, to reduce the impact on traffic,” Construction Superintendent David Fennewald said. “While we encourage drivers to find alternate routes, we don’t anticipate long delays here.”

Motorists, pedestrians and nonmotorized transportation users are urged to exercise extreme caution in the work zone.

APLEX, Inc. is the contractor for the Bike Boulevard (MKT Trail to Parkade) Project. For more information, visit CoMo.gov/PublicWorks/MKT-Parkade-BikeBlvd.
