Canyon Road East - 400' North of 84th St E to 72nd St E (CRP 5736)

What’s Happening

Construction on a project to enhance safety and relieve traffic congestion on Canyon Road East from 400 feet north of 84th Street East to 72nd Street East began April 11. The project is expected to be complete in Fall 2023.
Utility relocation work began August 2022 and was completed on May 19, 2023.  Starting May 22, crews continued storm sewer installation. 

Starting June 12, 2023, a detour between 72nd Street East and 84th Street East for southbound traffic will be in place during regular working hours. Northbound traffic will be able to continue through the work zone. Southbound traffic will be routed to Woodland Ave East and Waller Road East. We are expecting the work requiring the detour to be complete by the end of June.

Paving north of 72nd Street East on the East side of Canyon Road will take place the week of Oct. 17. Road widening work will continue this fall with grinding and paving activities, this work is weather dependent.
