UPDATE: Road Alerts: 116th, Golf Club Road
Posted on 01/16/2018

116th Avenue Southeast

Drivers should prepare for periodic lane closures on 116th Avenue Southeast between Southeast 80th and Southeast 82nd starting in January and continuing through the first few months of 2018. The contractor anticipates starting the work Jan. 22 and wrapping up by early March.

The one-lane closures will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to avoid impacting normal commuting hours. Minimal traffic delays are anticipated. Flaggers will be on site to direct traffic. Both lanes will be open for normal traffic outside of the designated closure times.

The roadwork is necessary to excavate the area and make connections to existing utilities for the Foxwoods housing development.

Newcastle Golf Club Road

The utility work on Newcastle Golf Club Road just east of the YMCA should be wrapped up by the end of this week, before the focus turns to work on frontage improvements. Steel plates will be removed and the road temporarily patched with asphalt. Ultimately, the road will be repaved across its entire width early next summer when weather conditions are suitable for large-scale paving projects.

However, expect minor road impacts to continue through March as crews complete frontage improvements (curb, gutter and sidewalk) along the under-construction Notch Apartments. The frontage improvements were originally planned for later in the year, however, the contractor has decided to do it sooner than later, that's why the closure has been extended into March.

We apologize for the inconvenience!
