Work at 112th Street East and A Street South intersection starts March 28

Work to relieve traffic congestion at the 112th Street East and A Street South intersection will start March 28. The work is expected to be complete by the end of July or early August.

The intersection will be widened to accommodate a new traffic signal system and a left-hand turn lane from westbound 112th Street East onto southbound A Street South.

Crews will install concrete curbs and gutters, along with street lighting and enclosed stormwater drainage and treatment systems. Curb ramps, sidewalks and crosswalks that are compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards will also be installed at the intersection.

Work will be done between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. Motorists should expect delays during work hours, and should consider using alternative routes. The work is weather dependent.

Minimal traffic impacts are expected on March 28 and 29. Starting March 30, there will be periodic lane restrictions on 112th Street East throughout the spring. Motorists should watch for flaggers and signage.

A Street South will periodically be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during work hours, with flaggers onsite to direct traffic.

In late spring, 112th Street East will be reduced from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction. Traffic will be shifted as needed onto the eastbound or westbound lanes.

Conway Construction is the contractor. The construction cost is approximately $2 million. The project is funded by Local Traffic Impact Fees, State Transportation Improvement Board Funds, and Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program Funds.
