North/East Purcell Blvd. – Phase 2 Road and Drainage Improvements

Week of Monday 6/019/2017

 

The North Purcell Boulevard Widening Project – Sub-Phase 2 will be in its 14th week with widening operations from Challenger Avenue to Fairbanks Drive.  North Purcell Boulevard will remain open to two-way traffic with lane shifts to the outside lanes.  Paving and striping of the center lane, last of the bottom mat, will begin.  Concrete pans and headwalls for pipes will also continue in this phase.  Paving of approach roads at intersections will begin after the main road (North Purcell Blvd.) is done on the bottom mat.

 

The speed limit is 30 mph through Sub-Phase 2 of the project with very short periods of time where traffic may be stopped by flaggers. Please be aware of lane delineation, construction equipment and crews.  Some delays will be unavoidable, but access to properties will be kept open throughout construction.

 

Temporary striping for Sub-Phase 1 (from the roundabout to Challenger Ave.) is in place until the top 2-inch mat is in place.  The speed limit in Sub-Phase 1 is 40 mph.  The center lane is a no passing zone for left turns only.   Some concrete work, and dirt work will continue on the shoulders.
