Weekly Construction Update as of May 23, 2014

Utility Work

Excavation work will continue during daytime hours (7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) for utility work on the west side of Aurora.

Retaining Wall Work

Retaining wall construction along Firlands Way N will occur during daylight construction hours and will take several weeks to complete. Affected residents can expect crews and equipment in front of their areas, as well as traffic control.

The walls are necessary due to the topography and grade changes within this segment of the project. The final walls will look similar to those on Aurora, north of N 185th Street, near Sky Nursery.

Access to Firlands Way N from Aurora remains closed for utility installation and retaining wall construction. During this work, Firlands Way N will have a 24-hour closure; however, local access will be maintained for residents at Firlands Way Condos. N 195th Street between Firlands Way N and Aurora will be closed intermittently. Access will be maintained for all residents in this area. Temporary traffic and pedestrian detours will be in place around the work area and flaggers will be on site to assist with traffic control. Parking on Firlands Way N will continue to be restricted.

Roadway Work

Roadway excavation work for the new southbound bus lane has been in progress. There will be some work for the new sidewalks in the next few weeks south of N 195th.

Southbound Aurora may be restricted to one lane during the daytime non-commute hours to perform any of the work above. Trucks will be entering and leaving the roadway in the work zones. Drivers should obey the speed limit and the no left turn signs, and drive carefully through this area. Pedestrians are encouraged to stay clear of work zones by following the signs and footprints on the ground around the work areas.

2014 Activities

Activities on the west side of Aurora that will continue through most of this year include asphalt pavement removal, excavation, utility work, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, retaining walls, and paving.
