We wanted to provide you with an update on improvements taking place on 12th Avenue SE. We anticipate sections of 12th Avenue to re-open by the end of June, and the next phase will begin. This is a two-year project; this year's work will focus on the segment from 7th Street to 10th Street.
Crews have completed new pavement placement between 7th Street to just west of 9th Street, as well as in front of Metro High School along 7th Street. Over the next two weeks, the contractor will be completing sidewalks, driveways and backfilling the curbs in preparation for re-opening 12th Avenue from 7th Street to 8th Street in late June.
Next Phase Closure
Late June, the contractor will begin the next phase, which will close 12th Avenue from 9th Street to 10th Street, including the intersections. Work will focus on underground utility work and pavement reconstruction, and will last approximately three months.
If you have any questions about the project, please don't hesitate to reach out to a member of our project team. We appreciate your patience!
