Work on the Yankee Hill Road project from 70th Street to the intersection of 91st Street and Highway 2 will resume Monday, February 20 with the full closure of the 70th and Yankee Hill intersection. Traffic will be detoured to 56th Street and Pine Lake Road. Local access will be maintained to residents between 70th and 84th Street via 84th Street.
The project includes paving Yankee Hill from 70th Street to Highway 2, widening it to four lanes between Sutherland Street and Highway 2 and building roundabouts at the quarter-mile, half-mile and mile intersections. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2017.
The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience while work is being completed on Yankee Hill Road to help us fulfill its mission: getting residents where they need to go safely and conveniently.
