The W.O. 16-09 Grand Avenue project will widen Grand Avenue between 52nd Street West and 58th Street West to a three lane section. This includes one driving lane in each direction with a center turn lane. A 10' wide multi-use path will be constructed along the south side of Grand Avenue between 52nd Street West and 58th Street West and along the west side of 54th Street West between Grand Avenue and Rimrock Road. Sidewalk with a width of 5' will be constructed along portions of the north side of Grand Avenue and the east side of 54th Street West. A traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of 54th Street West and Grand Avenue. A HAWK signal will be installed on Grand Avenue near the front entrance to Ben Steel Middle School.
July 20, 2017 Update: Grand Avenue is open as of Thursday July 20th. Work will continue with lane closures only for the duration of the project.
August 22, 2017 Update: A 3-way stop has been installed at the intersection of Grand Avenue and 54th Street West. This is temporary until the traffic signal can be installed later in September. Please take caution at this intersection. The project is substantially complete except for the traffic signal and HAWK signal which will be completed in September.
