Business driveways on the north side of "O" Street will be closed during this time. Customers can still reach these businesses from side streets and alleys. Motorists can watch for directional signs put up by business owners.
Beginning March 18, Constructors Inc. will start demolishing and reconstructing the north side (westbound) lanes of "O" Street. A water main will also be installed in the road. Construction will begin at 52nd Street and move eastward.
New permanent traffic signals will help to control traffic during and after construction at the intersections of 52nd and "O" streets; 46th and "R" streets; and 52nd and "R" streets. The City encourages drivers to use "R" Street and Vine Street as alternatives to "O" Street for east-west travel.
Portions of two "O" Street intersections will be temporarily closed during this construction:
The latest information on the construction project can be found on the 24-Hour East "O" Street Information Line, 441-0432, and on the city web site at
