We wanted to let you know that Bowling Street SW improvements are tentatively scheduled to resume the week of March 8, 2021. We anticipate completing the project by summer 2021.
Bowling Street SW will remain open to traffic during construction, with lane restrictions in effect. Please watch for changing traffic patterns as work progresses.
About the Project
The project started last year and focused on railroad crossing upgrades between 49th Avenue Drive SW and 43rd Avenue SW. The railroad crossing received a new street crossing, new rail signal, and trail/sidewalk crossing upgrades.
This year, construction will focus on pavement improvements on Bowling Street SW, between 50th Avenue SW and Wilson Avenue SW. In addition to pavement repairs, Bowling Street SW will also be converted from four lanes (two lanes each direction) to three lanes (one lane each direction with a dedicated center turn lane). This layout results in fewer rear-end crashes and improves safety by providing a shared middle turn lane for drivers making left-hand turns, without impacting traffic flow.
If you have any questions or concerns during construction, please reach out to our project team. Contact information is listed on the right-hand side.
