Westbound 13th Street North,
between 119th and 135th Streets West will be closed
beginning Tuesday, May 12. During the closure, westbound 13th Street
will be detoured to Central at 119th Street. Local traffic will be
allowed west of 119th to Cedar Park.
The intersection at 135th Street will be
reconstructed to include left turn lanes in all directions. The intersection
will remain a four-way stop upon completion as traffic signals are not warranted
at this time. During construction of the intersection, 135th Street
will be northbound only through the intersection.
The closure is part of a project that will
reconstruct 13th Street to a three-lane roadway between the Cowskin
Creek Bridge and 135th Street.
The project also includes drainage
improvements, sidewalk, and a 10-foot multi-use path on the north side of 13th
Electronic message signs are posted along
13th Street to provide advance warning of the closure.
The $3.8 million project is funded by
general obligation bonds. Estimated
completion is spring 2021.
