Beginning Tuesday, May 27, sections of N. 33rd Street from "P" to Holdrege streets will be closed to through traffic for rehabilitation. The work will take place in two phases:
The detour routes are 27th and 48th streets. Vine Street will remain open to traffic, with one lane in each direction. N. 33rd is scheduled to reopen by August 31.
In addition to street resurfacing, the project includes the reconstruction of sidewalk curb ramps to meet ADA requirements. Signal devices called rapid flashing beacons will be installed at the MoPac Trail crossing. The beacons help to reduce crashes between vehicles and pedestrians at intersections without signals and mid-block pedestrian crossings.
The City will work with local businesses and residents to maintain access during construction. Access to residences may be restricted at times, but driveway closures will not exceed seven to 10 days. The project is funded with fuel tax and wheel tax dollars.
