On-site prep work, which began Jan. 25, and will continue through March, will include removing the existing concrete and establishing underground utility connections. The new sidewalks, ramps and traffic poles will be installed in early April. The PHB is expected to be operating in late April.

Motorists should be prepared for brief delays and intermittent lane closures through late April 2021.

  • Work will take place from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.
  • One travel lane will remain open in each direction.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zone. 
  • Vehicles should proceed with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

The new traffic control device is designed to help pedestrians safely cross busy or higher-speed roadways at midblock crossings and uncontrolled intersections. Visit the Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon page for additional information, including an instructional video.

Project Schedule 

  • January through May 2021 (final lane striping and sign installation is expected in May)
  • Schedule subject to change based on weather or other unforeseen factors.
