69th Street – Louise Avenue to Medical Court

Overview of 69th Street Construction Project

Update 06/12/2019

The contractor is finishing up utility work on the south side of 69th Street and working on final grading to allow construction of the new eastbound lanes to begin.  Installation of the box culvert has begun at the northeast corner of 69th Street and Beal Avenue.  As this box culvert approaches the intersection of 69th and Beal, traffic will be maintained on a temporary gravel road on the south side of the existing road.  At this time, Beal Avenue will reopen to the south via the temporary gravel road, and Beal Place will be closed to perform utility work in that area.
