Hwy 110 Traffic Impact Update
As we mentioned last week, work on eastbound Hwy 110 is continuing to progress. However, the construction crews did encounter some unsuitable materials in the field which has delayed our stage one time line for switching the eastbound closure to the westbound side from July 24 to the week of August 7.
As we noted, the contractor was working on ways to keep the work for stage two on schedule. In evaluating the work that will need to get done, one solution was to utilize lane closures on the westbound lanes.
Beginning tomorrow (July 11) at 7 p.m. westbound Hwy 110 will be reduced to a single lane between Mendota Rd. and Delaware Ave. A 10 foot width restriction will also be in place. The lane closure is expected to last through Fri, July 21.
The following locations will continue to be in the same configuration between I-35E and I-494 for the duration of Stage 1:
- Eastbound Hwy 110 closed between I-35E and I-494
- Charlton Rd closed at Hwy 110
- Sunfish Ln. will be a left from westbound Hwy 110 in and left out to westbound Hwy 110
- Angell Rd. residents will have access to eastbound Hwy 110 access to Hwy 3. You will need to U-Turn at Mendota Rd. when heading westbound on Hwy 110
- The residents east of Sunfish Ln. will be local access only to and from their property via Mendota Rd.
- The loop ramp from Hwy 3/Robert St. to eastbound I-494 closed
*Reminder: As of June 12, the contractor is utilizing nighttime hours (9 p.m.-5 a.m.). This work may include: removals, excavation/grading, installation/removal of shoring, and installation of a box culvert under Hwy 110. These nighttime activities are expected to continue through mid-September.
