Lanewood Street – pipeline construction almost complete!

Some equipment remains along the shoulder that is supporting the work on Douglas Circle, but this will be removed in the near future.  The contractor will pave the pipeline trench in the near future as weather permits.

Douglas Circle – pipeline construction through April

Crews have begun installing pipe along the southerly leg of Douglas Circle. This work will continue for two more weeks, moving from west to east. The road will be closed during work hours (7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday). Traffic detours will be in place around Douglas Circle, between Twin Fir Road and Lanewood Street. Access will be allowed for local residents and emergency vehicles within the closed area. For more information about construction and road closures, visit the work underway page.

Twin Fir Road – sawcutting and survey starting next week

Next week, expect to see crews surveying and sawcutting asphalt along Twin Fir, in preparation for construction the following week.  Pipeline construction is expected to continue for about three weeks. During the work, traffic detours will be in place around Twin Fir Road.

Upper Drive – sawcutting and survey

Within 2-3 weeks, expect to see crews surveying and sawcutting asphalt along Upper Drive, in preparation for construction in 3-4 weeks.  During the work, traffic will be detoured around this section of Upper Drive

Chandler Road – pipeline construction complete!

Even though pipeline construction is completed on Chandler, expect traffic delays of up to 15 minutes as pipe and equipment staging continues in this area to support the work on Iron Mtn. Blvd. The contractor will pave the pipeline trench in the near future as weather permits.

Iron Mountain Boulevard – pipeline construction underway

Crews are now progressing west on Iron Mountain Blvd. installing 42” pipe near Chandler Road. Work on Iron Mountain Blvd. will continue through summer. Single lane closures are currently in place with flaggers, but later in May, Iron Mountain Blvd. between Fairway Road and Summit will be closed to through traffic during work hours. To view the latest road closures and construction activity, visit the work underway map. Expect delays of up to 15 minutes on roads on or near the construction.

B Ave – exploratory digging and geologic investigations in April
