PAVING FOR PROGRESS
42nd Street Improvements        


Construction Update: 6-24-16
 
There has been a lot of construction activity on 42nd Street the last few weeks:

  • Sanitary sewer and water main construction has begun east of the Wenig Road intersection.
  • The storm sewer and water main work in the Northwood Drive intersection will soon be completed, and then preparation for paving will begin. 
  • The Northwood Drive intersection is expected to be closed for approximately two more weeks.

Wenig Closure
Once the Northwood Drive intersection is re-opened to north/south traffic, the Wenig Road intersection will be closed to all traffic for approximately five weeks. The estimated timeline to close Wenig Road is July 5, and we will confirm this date as the project moves along. 

A detour will be in place on Glass Road, between Blue Jay Drive and Center Point Road. As before, through traffic will be encouraged to find an alternate route. 

We appreciate your collaboration and patience as we work to reconstruct 42nd Street. Crews are working as quickly as possible on improvements.
