Johnson Avenue NW       

Construction Update: 4-3-18
Work will begin within later this week or early next on the Johnson Avenue NW project.

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.

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
  • Roundabout at Johnson Ave and Wiley Blvd, and at Johnson Ave and Jacolyn Dr.
  • Construction of the roundabout at Johnson Ave and Wiley Blvd will take place this summer when school is out of session. The project will be completed fall of 2019.
Road Closures
The project will move from west to east in segments. While a given segment is underway, it will be fully closed to traffic.

Garbage & Recycling
Please continue to follow your regular waste collection schedule. The contractor will be in charge of ensuring bins are picked up and returned to you.
