Phase I & II construction on 126th Street & SR 37 has been completed. These phases consisted of temporary pavement and crossovers on SR 37 along with widening 131st Street at Parkside Drive. Utility relocation has been completed as well in this intersection. The next phase of construction will be the excavation of the intersection and construction of the bridge on 126th Street.
Phase III of construction is underway with traffic currently shifted to the east. Traffic is now restricted on 126th Street across SR 37 and a detour is in place to mitigate this movement. Motorists are encouraged to use 131st Street to cross SR 37. This is set to stay in place until July where traffic will be shifted to the west for the next phase of construction. During this time, SR 37 will remain open to through traffic. The City anticipates this intersection to be complete and open to the public by the end of the year. See the Detour Route.
146th street interchange was awarded in February 2020 to the lowest bidder, Rieth Riley. The project will commence once all the utilities have been relocated.
Utilities are currently on site and there will be intermittent lane restrictions throughout the summer to accommodate relocations.
Tree clearing will also be completed before April 1. The first phase of construction is anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2020.
