One lane of traffic is now open in each direction on S. 56th Street from Old Cheney to Pine Lake Road. The major improvement project under way from Old Cheney to Shadow Pines includes widening the street from two to four lanes; construction of a new bridge; upgraded water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure; additional soil work to provide a stable pavement base; multiple retaining walls; a noise wall; additional turn lanes; and a new sidewalk and trail.
Additional work on the project is expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting. That work will not require closing the two lanes that opened today.
