POST DRIVE RECONSTRUCTION
Reconstruction on Post Drive between Pine Island Drive and Samrick Avenue is scheduled to be completed by June 17. Work will include necessary earthwork, concrete curb, gutter and storm sewer replacement, Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) paving, pavement marking and restoration. Through traffic west of US-131 will be detoured for the project’s duration. More information: Post Drive Project.
DIVISION AVENUE SAFETY PROJECT
The safety project on Division Avenue between 84th Street and 76th Street is scheduled to be completed by June 23. The corridor will be reconfigured from four lanes to three. This “road diet” is a road agency practice that seeks to improve safety by incorporating a center turn lane and reducing the number of through lanes on a given section of road. On Division Avenue, the existing surface will receive a full depth cold mill. Concrete pavement in the center half of the existing roadway will be removed and the existing southbound right-turn lane will be extended 600 north of 84th street. The road will be resurfaced with Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) pavement and restriped from a four lane to a three-lane configuration with center turn lane. Through traffic will be detoured for the duration of the project. More information: Division Avenue Project.
