This project provides for the reconstruction of Meredith Drive from 156th Street west to ¼ mile east of 170th Street as a four-lane roadway with left turn lanes including grading, and storm sewer. The paving will be portland cement concrete with two 26-foot wide paving sections and a 28-foot grass median and a 10-foot trail on the north side. This is a joint project with the City of Clive. It is anticipated that this project would be completed by the end of November 2019.
Concrete Technologies Inc. (CTI), has been hired by the Cities for the reconstruction of Meredith Drive. The project will be completed in 2 major stages.
Stage 1 will consist of reconstructing Meredith Drive from 156th Street to just east of NW 164th Street. Stage 1 is closed and Meredith Drive is closed to all through traffic. 160th Street and 162nd Street are closed at Meredith Drive. A temporary access is scheduled to be constructed for the Acadia Subdivision to access Meredith Drive on April 22nd. It is anticipated around the middle of next week Centennial Blvd will be closed and the asphalt access will be the only access. It is anticipated all of the temporary access roads east of 164th Street will be in place and in use by the middle of next week. After the accesses are moved to the temporary roads, Meredith Drive will be removed between 156th Street and 162nd Street.
An official detour route will be established on 156th Street, Douglas Parkway and 170th Street. The Police and Fire Departments will be notified of the closed areas.
Once Stage 1 is complete and open to traffic, the road closures will be adjusted for Phase 2’s construction. Phase 2 construction will consist of the closure of Meredith Drive from the west side of 162nd Street to 170th Street.
