The Albany Street Widening Project

The Albany Street Widening Project

Albany Street widening project

Albany Street (61st St.) between Lynn Lane (9th Street) and 23rd Street, is being widened to five lanes. Construction of the intersection, sidewalks, and driveways on the north side is complete. Traffic is being redirected to the center of the roadway so that the contractor can work on the south side over the next four to six weeks. Soon, they will add a top layer of asphalt to all five lanes.

A new traffic signal is installed at 12th Street and will be operational soon. This widening project should be finished by May 2024.

23rd Street (County Line Road) widening project (Houston to Kenosha)

The work is progressing on the SH-51 Bridge on both the north and south sides. Construction shouldn't affect rush hour drive times with the bridge beam work now complete. Work is continuing during the day, one lane at a time.

Temporary roadway widening is now in place along the east side of 23rd Street from Houston to College Street. The traffic has shifted to the new pavement, and construction on the east side of the roadway is now underway. The stormwater drain improvement construction at the Houston intersection is ongoing and expected to continue for several weeks. Alignment issues slowed the intersection's construction progress, but City staff is working with ODOT to resolve these issues.

Washington Street widening project, from Olive Street to Aspen Avenue

Washington Street (91st St.) is being widened to five lanes. The contractor has completed 90 percent of the widening process and added a 10-foot-wide trail, driveways, curb, and gutter. Most of the preliminary asphalt on the north side of Washington Street is finished. If the weather remains favorable, the final layers of asphalt will be placed by the end of the month, followed by striping.

Elam Park

The surface grading and drainage system installation is complete. And the construction of the heavy-duty driveway, site utilities, irrigation system, and restroom utilities is ongoing. A retaining wall for the park is in place, and 90 percent of the playground concrete is complete. Plus, the restroom walls are now under construction. We anticipate the opening of Elam Park later this summer.

Events Park

A new interior road with a bridge over the creek is under construction at Events Park. The new route connects the Challenger Sports Complex to Events Park. The Streets and Stormwater Department has placed the footings for the bridge and erected the prefabricated structure. They are now backfilling dirt over the bridge. This project will make these two dynamic parks more accessible to each other.

Rose District Parking

10 free parking spaces are coming to the southeast corner of 1st and Detroit Streets. The north parking lot is now open, with decorative lighting and masonry castings coming soon. The southern parking lot is also making significant progress. Weather permitting, the contractor will finish all concrete and accessory work this month.

Traffic signal pole painting project

The painting should restart in late March when temperatures are consistently warm. On Feb. 6, the City Council approved a change order to add 27 intersections to the project's original 10.

City Fleet Building

The Maintenance Department will use this new facility for small vehicle oil changes. The facility's site and under-slab utilities are complete, and its footings are installed and ready for placement. The City currently services approximately 1,900 vehicles and pieces of equipment, so it will significantly benefit our maintenance team when it finishes later in the month.
