Work on 13th Street intersection to cause temporary closure to through traffic
Posted on 5/16/2012
Construction starting tomorrow, May 17, along the U.S. Highways 2 & 52 and 13th Street SE intersection will impact the traveling public as the following will occur starting at 7 a.m.:
- Traffic will be reduced to one lane each direction for those traveling both eastbound and westbound on U.S. Highways 2 & 52 with initial work taking place in the inside median lanes. - Once work is completed on the inside lanes crews will move to the outside lanes. - 13th Street SE, from 21st Avenue SE to 18th Avenue SE for both northbound and southbound traffic, will be temporarily closed. - Access to businesses remains open, see the construction map for details.
Motorists traveling northbound and southbound on 13th Street SE should plan ahead and find alternate routes. Speeds along U.S. Highways 2 & 52 will be reduced. Flaggers will be present throughout the construction zone. As work continues, for the traveling public safety and the safety of construction workers, drivers are reminded to stay alert when traveling through the construction zone.
The prime contractor, Keller Paving, will be completing mill and overlay work and placing the final lift of asphalt through the intersection. It is expected that normal traffic routes through the area will be able to resume within a week.
