The following changes were made to traffic control on E. 9th Street to aid traffic flow and reduce traffic delays during construction:
The Engineering, Streets, and Police Departments will continue to monitor traffic in the afternoon and early evening.
Beginning Monday morning, October 14, 2019, work will begin on the E. 9th Street Improvements between 1st Avenue and Quarry Road with the installation of traffic control devices. Construction activity will begin on Tuesday, October 15.
About the ProjectThis project will enhance the E. 9th Street corridor with the addition of landscaped center medians, new north-south crosswalks, curb bump outs to establish parallel parking areas and shorten crosswalk distances, completion of the brick paver streetscape along the south side of E. 9th Street, and conversion of the E. 9th Street & E. 2nd Avenue intersection into a four-leg roundabout. The project will be constructed in two phases.
Construction PhasesPhase 1 construction will run from October 14 to November 22, 2019. Work includes:
During Phase 1, E. 9th Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction with no on-street parking allowed. Traffic will run head-to-head on the north half of E. 9th Street between Ponseti Way and Quarry Road. A new STOP sign will be installed on westbound E. 9th Street at Ponseti Way to make the eastbound left turn and through movements free-flow to minimize the chance of traffic backing up into 1st Avenue.
TimelinePhase 1 construction is to be complete by November 22, 2019, and then all lanes will be open until April 1, 2020, when Phase 2 construction begins. Phase 2 will complete the roundabout at E. 9th Street & E. 2nd Avenue and all remaining work along E. 9th Street by July 22, 2020.
