Construction on University Avenue is complete. Below are all updates from the project.
University Avenue from 63rd Street to 69th Street is scheduled to close Thursday, October 7th, (weather dependent) for an asphalt overlay. This closure will begin at 5 am on Thursday, October 7th, and will be closed until 5 am on Friday, October 8th.
All side streets on the north and south side of the road will remain open, but there will be no access through any of the intersections on University Ave. Please use I-235 as a detour and use the side streets to access businesses, which will remain open during the closure.
This will be the last road closure for the University Ave project.
Check out the video above to see the new features along University Ave.
Starting Wednesday, July 28th, traffic will shift to the south side of the road in the 6500 block of University Ave to allow for the installation of storm intakes, curb and gutter replacement, installation of light poles, and patching of the roadway. There will be access to businesses.
Work on the north side of the road in the 6500 block is expected to be completed by the afternoon of August 20th. This completion date will depend on the accuracy of underground utility locates and the weather.
University Avenue to Close to Through Traffic 5/10
Through traffic on University Avenue will be closed beginning at 6 AM on Monday, May 10th until 7 PM on Friday, June 11th. The soft closure will be posted at the intersections of 70th / University and 63rd / University. There will be no through traffic between 66th and 67th Streets during the closure.
Beginning on approximately May 24th, the entire intersection of 66th Street will be closed on all directions until the detour is lifted on June 11th.
Businesses will be open and there will be access to those locations during this closure. Message boards will be installed directing motorists to the posted detours and informing people that all local businesses will remain open.
This closure is necessary so that storm sewer cross runs, paving, and utility work can be completed in the 6600 block of University Avenue and at the intersection of 66th Street.
