Yankee Hill from 70th to 84th streets was closed to through traffic today for a major road project. The intersections of Yankee Hill at 70th and 84th are open, however, the intersection at 84th will be closed starting Wednesday, June 15. Access to local traffic will be maintained at all times, and the suggested detour route is 70th Street and Highway 2.
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. The street is expected to open to traffic in August 2017, weather permitting.
