Vine Street Rehab Project Will Lead to Closures

An improvement project on Vine Street from 27th to 48th streets will begin Monday, May 23, weather permitting. The project includes asphalt mill and overlay and concrete base repair as well as partial reconstruction of the intersections at 33rd, 45th and 48th streets.

Work is scheduled to begin with the partial reconstruction at 45th Street, which will require an eight-day closure of west bound Vine between 45th and 48th streets. This work will be followed by the closure of the 48th and Vine intersection for about eight days. When 48th and Vine is completed, work will progress to the intersection of 33rd and Vine, which will also close for about eight days. Only one section will be closed at a time, and detours will be in place. The remainder of the work will require lane closures, with at least one lane open to traffic in both directions.

Additional work includes the replacement of curb ramps to meet ADA standards; replacement of damaged or failing curb lines; removing and replacing damaged storm drainage inlet tops; making utility adjustments; and restoring traffic signal elements impacted by the work.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by October 7, weather permitting.
