Aurora construction: Week of October 11

Monday, October 11, 2010

Construction activities on the west side of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th
Crews will continue to install storm lines, utility vaults and the JUT in City right-of-way on the west side of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th Streets. As trenching continues north, drivers should continue to pay attention to potential driveway revisions. Access to businesses will be maintained, but may change over the course of construction. Look for blue “Business Access” signs to know where to turn into driveways.

Two lanes of traffic in each direction on Aurora will be maintained during this work. Please drive safe in construction areas and pay attention to signage indicating where vehicles are and are not allowed to turn.

Activities on N 185th Street – Interurban Trail open in this area
Crews have poured the Interurban Trail that makes up the sidewalk on the south side of N 185th Street. The Interurban Trail is now open in this area and pedestrians can travel on the trail around Bartell Drugs and south to N 175th Street. Please pay attention as some final connections still need to be completed, such as at the corner of Midvale Avenue and N 185th Street. This work must occur after final signal poles are installed at Midvale Avenue and N 185th Street; we will let you know when this work is scheduled. Please continue to use the temporary asphalt paths to connect to sidewalks at this location and others, and pay attention to any detour signage.
In the weeks ahead, curb patching and additional work will occur on the south side of N 185th Street. Work on the north side of N 185th Street will continue as crews begin installing root boxes. Intermittent single lane closures on N 185th Street will be necessary to complete construction activities.

Progressing north of N 185th Street
Crews have poured driveways and the bus pad on the east side of Aurora, north of N 185th Street. Work will continue in this area in the coming weeks, including some additional concrete work near the bus pad and paving asphalt on the back side of driveways and on the roadway (see below). Pedestrians should take care to not walk on the shoulder of Aurora north of N 185th Street; instead, please use the Interurban Trail located just east of Dunn Lumber and Sky Nursery.

Decorative brick pavers installed in sidewalks on N 175th Street
Work continues to progress on N 175th Street. Crews are currently installing decorative brick pavers in portions of the sidewalk on N 175th Street and began pouring the “radius,” or curved sidewalk corners, at the corner of Midvale Avenue and N 175th Streets, near City Hall.

The schedule for concrete pouring was pushed back due to the discovery of old underground structural components in City right-of-way at Key Bank, as well as the need to design and plan for the relocation of the fire service. If it doesn’t rain, the contractor anticipates sidewalk pouring to begin this week.

Intermittent single lane closures between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. may be necessary to complete this work.

Other construction work on Aurora
Ronald Wastewater will continue installing underground pipe on Aurora between N 192nd and N 195th Streets, unrelated to the Aurora Corridor Project. They will temporarily close one northbound lane on Aurora from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. through mid-October.

Coming soon: Paving the east side of Aurora, north of N 185th Street
During the week of October 18, crews plan to pave the east side of Aurora, north of N 185th Street. This work is currently planned to occur during the day; a single lane closures may be necessary. Stay tuned for more details.
