Antelope Valley Parkway (North/South Roadway), "K" to "P" Streets
This project is along the existing 19th Street alignment from "K" to "P" Streets and will reconstruct the roadway to a six-lane median-divided roadway including turn lanes. Also included is the reconstruction at the intersecting streets along the 19th Street corridor; 'L,' 'M,' 'N,' 'O,' and "P" Streets. Along with street construction, extensive storm sewer improvements to reduce localized street flooding will be made between 19th and 21st streets along "N" and "L" Streets and along 21st Street between "L" and "N" Streets. Additionally the project will reconstruct sidewalks, water lines, and sanitary sewers, along with private utility relocations.
A pre-construction open house meeting was held February 10, 2011 from 5-6:30 p.m. at the field office at 2143 "O" Street.
The project began March 7, 2011 and is scheduled be open to traffic August 31, 2012, with final completion November 21, 2012. Construction on the north/south roadway and the storm sewer improvements along 21st, "L" and "N" streets began in 2011. The north/south roadway opened to traffic, one-lane in each direction in December 2012. Access to businesses along 19th Street will be maintained throughout construction. Reconstruction of "O" Street from 17th to 21st Streets is scheduled to begin in 2012, no sooner than after the high school basketball tournaments in March. The contractor will have 90 calendar days to complete the work in "O" Street and reopen to traffic. "O" Street in this section will be completely closed and traffic will be detoured to "P" and "Q" Streets between 16th, 17th on the west to 21st Street on the east. A temporary traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of 21st and "P" Street to facilitate the detoured traffic. Pedestrian access to businesses along "O" Street will be maintained at all times.
When this project is complete, 19th Street will be renamed Antelope Valley Parkway. This project, along with replacement of the South Street bridge at 38th Street, completes the Antelope Valley Phase One Transportation Improvements by completing Antelope Valley Parkway between "K" Street and Cornhusker Highway, and Salt Valley Roadway from 10th Street to 27th Street.
