Cedar Valley Nature Trail Closure During Flood Control Project Update | January 7, 2021

Starting today, the Cedar Valley Nature Trail will be closed from 10th Street NE, along McLoud Run, and south to the Cedar Lake Loop located at the northwest corner of Cedar Lake as permanent flood control efforts continue in the area north of Cedar Lake.  A detour has been established along 10th Street NE. Work is currently underway on the first phase of flood control at the Shaver Road NE bridge, over McLoud Run (aka Cold Stream). 

The trail segment in this area will remain closed for approximately the next three years as work is completed at the Shaver Road bridge and levee construction begins. The trail closure is associated with the work taking place at Shaver Road, which will include elevating the bridge and constructing a trail underpass.

O Avenue NW Construction Update | January 21, 2021

Road closures on O Avenue will continue to move westward as work progresses. Barricades are staggered so residents can access their homes.  Please be alert for moving equipment and workers.

Winter weather has been cooperative and underground work continues. Storm sewer and water services were completed recently between 20th Street and 24th Street. Water main installation is underway, heading west from 24th Street. Box culvert installation remains underway, continuing west from 26th Street.  This also includes replacing residential sanitary sewer services to homes on the south side of O Avenue. Residents will have only brief interruptions to their sanitary sewer service when new services are connected. 

If favorable weather continues, both box culvert and water main installation will continue until they reach the entrance to Nedderman Farms.  

1st Avenue / CeMar Trail Construction Update | January 27, 2021
The largest component of the project is the pedestrian underpass between 29th Street and 32nd Street. Crews have completed the demolition and removal of the old railroad bridge, and have constructed temporary travel lanes to keep traffic flow open. Steady progress will continue throughout the winter on underground utilities (storm sewer, water main, and sanitary sewer) along the east side of the roadway. Over the winter, crews will also begin construction of the new pedestrian underpass, which will be completed during the 2021 construction season.

The current traffic pattern will remain in place over the course of the winter. Traffic will remain open one lane each direction between 29th Street and 32nd Street, until crews can complete the underpass in its entirety and restore all travel lanes in 2021. 

At the end of the project, the temporary lanes will be de-constructed and two lanes each direction and a center turn lane will be restored on 1st Avenue. The east leg of the intersection at 1st Avenue and 29th Street (Walgreens side) will remain closed over the winter; the west leg of the intersection (Five Seasons Tire side) will remain right-in, right-out only. The project includes a new northbound right turn lane at this intersection.

Bowling Street SW Construction Update | December 9, 2020
Crews have completed railroad work just north of 49th Avenue Drive SW, and have made progress on pavement repairs at the Prairie Creek bridge. Bridge work will continue for the next few weeks with a lane reduction in this area, which will be restored before the end of the year. 

All other work has wrapped up for the year and the majority of traffic control has been removed for the season.  The project will resume in the spring and is scheduled to be completed in 2021. 

Bridge Repairs Begin on C Avenue NE; Cottage Grove Avenue SE
Two bridge maintenance projects will begin this week. Starting Tuesday, December 1, bridge repair work will be underway on C Avenue NE, between Brentwood Drive and Teakwood Lane. Starting on Wednesday, December 2, work will begin on Cottage Grove Avenue SE, between 34th Street and Indian Hill Road. Lane reductions will be in effect during both projects, for approximately two weeks. Work includes joint repair and other maintenance. These are two of several bridge maintenance projects scheduled for winter 2020 – spring 2021, focusing on periodic maintenance such as joint repair, pavement, or railing improvements.
