69th Street & Western Avenue Reconstruction Project

Beginning on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 69th Street between Western Avenue and Minnesota Avenue will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction as the reconstruction project begins the next phase of construction. 69th Street between Landau Circle and Western Avenue and Western Avenue between Remington Place and 69th Street will remain reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction.

During construction, traffic will be maintained along 69th Street and along Western Avenue at all times, with the exception of a short duration later this summer on Western Avenue, south of 69th Street. Although traffic will be maintained, traffic delays are expected.

This project is expected to be fully open to traffic by late fall. The final completion is scheduled for the spring of 2018.

Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed while travelling near the construction area and may want to consider alternate routes.
