Public Meeting Scheduled
A public meeting will be held to present plans for reconstruction of Hydraulic from Harry to Kellogg, at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 1 at the Linwood Recreation Center, 1901 S. Kansas.
The project is scheduled to begin on or about Feb. 8 with a projected completion date of Oct. 1, 2010. Landscaping and cleanup is expected to be completed by November 1. Paver’s, Inc. is the contractor for the project.
The $3.6 million project will provide one through lane in each direction and a center two-way turn lane. The intersections with Harry and Lincoln will be reconstructed, including new traffic signals. Drainage improvements, sidewalks on both sides of Hydraulic and reconstructed sanitary sewer lines and water mains will be included. $2.97 million will be paid by American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) funding.
For most of the project, southbound traffic on Hydraulic will be detoured west on Douglas to Washington, south to Harry, and east to Hydraulic.
One lane of northbound traffic will also be permitted between Harry and Kellogg Drive for the majority of the project. However during the early stages Hydraulic will be closed to northbound through traffic north of Harry for approximately ten days. Later, northbound through traffic will be prohibited between Lincoln and Morris for approximately 14 days.
At least one lane of east and west bound traffic will be maintained on Harry and Lincoln at all times.
Electronic message boards will notify motorists of these closures a week or more in advance. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained during the entire project.
