Please take the time to pre-plan and re-route you daily commute and routine errands if they include these intersections. The short term discomfort of road construction is offset by the long-term economic development benefits to our community of having an efficient network of carefully-planned and well-maintained roads.
Carey Road and 136th Street: This T-intersection will be fully reconstructed to a single lane roundabout. This project will include new full-depth pavement, curb and gutter, an enclosed storm water system and a shared-use path with new curb ramps. Any private drives located within the limits of the intersection reconstruction will be replaced. Access to residential properties within the project limits will be maintained at all times. The intersection will be closed to thru traffic for the duration of construction, roughly 45 days, with thru traffic being detoured along 146th Street and Gray Road.
Carey Road and Hawthorne Drive: This intersection also will be fully reconstructed to a single lane roundabout. The roundabout construction will include, but not be limited to, new full depth pavement, concrete curb and gutter, new storm drainage features and use of existing drainage features, reconstruction of existing sidewalks within the project limits and new ADA compliant curb ramps. Permanent Right of Way will need to be acquired in the southeast and northeast quadrants of the roundabout. The intersection will be closed to through traffic during the construction of the roundabout, roughly 45 days. The detour route is tentatively planned to use 146th Street and Keystone Avenue.
