West 13th Road Closure Begins Tuesday

Contact: Steve Degenhardt, Construction Manager, Public Works and Utilities |

​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 Street.

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.
