13th One Lane NewsFlash

The eastbound lane of 13th Street will close to motorists starting as early as Monday, August 26, as crews dig into drainage and sidewalk work between the railroad tracks and Gilpin Street. The Gilpin Street intersection will remain open during the one-lane closure.

Eastbound travelers will be required to detour west on 13th Street to the James Brown Bridge and to US40 during this phase of the project. The closure will run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for about a month. The westbound lane will remain open and provisions will be made for pedestrian access.

13th Street Eastbound Closure

The one-lane directional closure ensures ample room for efficient work area as well as safety buffers for crews.  Lower speed limits will be in effect and motorist are asked to slow down while traveling through the construction zone and follow all traffic controls instructions.

The 13th Street Project consists of construction of approximately 1,100 lineal feet of eight-foot sidewalk, 1,100 lineal feet of storm sewer pipe, roadway widening, intersection improvements, asphalt paving and patching and signing and striping along 13th St, which crosses the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way.

Under the oversight of the city’s Engineering Department, the project has hosted several public open houses, proactively reached out to effected neighborhoods and businesses as well as conducted individual meetings.
