Aurora Corridor Construction week of July 18

N 165 to N 185th

Traffic shift and lane restriping on Aurora (night work)
On Monday and Tuesday nights, crews will stripe new lanes on Aurora between N 165th and N 175th Streets. Traffic will be shifted east on Aurora by Wednesday morning and construction will begin on the west side of Aurora. This will be very similar to how the temporary traffic lanes were established at the beginning of the project. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Please drive carefully and pay attention to signage indicating where vehicles are and are not allowed to turn.

Construction beginning on the west side of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th
After traffic is shifted east, crews will set up a work zone to begin roadway excavation on the west side of Aurora. Construction on the west side of Aurora will look very similar to construction on the east side, including such improvements as underground utilities and new sidewalks and driveways. Construction will generally begin at the south end of the project area, near N 165th Street, and proceed north. Asphalt removal and roadway excavation is expected to begin late this week.

Completing driveway and sidewalk construction on the east side of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th
On Monday and Tuesday, crews will complete work on driveway entrances, sidewalks and bus pads between N 165th and N 175th Streets.

Excavation and grading on Midvale Avenue and the Interurban Trail
Next week, crews will excavate and grade Midvale Avenue and the Interurban Trail, north of N 175th Street. A single lane closure will be necessary on Midvale during the day to provide enough room to complete this work.

Joint utility trench (JUT) installation along N 185th Street
Crews will install the JUT along the south side of N 185th Street, east of Aurora. Traffic lanes will be reduced to one westbound lane on N 185th Street on both sides of Aurora to provide enough room for this work.

JUT installation, grading and curbs on N 175th Street
Crews will continue installing the JUT along N 175th Street, east of Aurora. Late this week, excavation and grading behind the existing curb on the north side of N 175th Street will begin in preparation for pouring new curbs. While lane excavation is not necessary at this time, a single westbound lane of N 175th Street will be closed between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to provide enough room to complete this work.

Light pole installation
Light pole installation between N 175th and N 185th Streets will occur this week.
