Construction of a noise wall will begin Monday, August 8, at the northeast corner of 56th Street and Shadow Pines Drive. During the construction, through traffic will be maintained in both directions, with the northbound lanes shifted to the west between Shadow Pine Drive and London Road. For safety reasons, the speed limit will be reduced between Pine Lake Road and London Road.
Left turns at the Shadow Pines Drive and London Road intersections will not be allowed during construction. Instead, motorists will have to drive to the next available street and make a U-turn before traveling back to their destination street.
The noise wall construction is the final portion of the S. 56th Street project, which included street widening, construction of a new bridge, upgraded water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure, and a new sidewalk and trail. Work on the noise wall is expected to take just over three weeks, weather permitting. Additional work to complete final grading, sidewalks and sod work will take place under temporary lane closures.
The project team appreciates the support and understanding of the public during the completion of this major project.
