The Highway 191 widening project from north of downtown to the Colorado River continues with work taking place at a variety of locations, including from the Colorado River to Rubicon Trails, where crews have been building a retaining wall to support the shoulder along the highway, as well as for a new sidewalk on the west side.
Signal installation at the highway and 500 West began Tuesday, May 19. Work to improve the shoulder and add width to the road also is taking place in this area.
The middle of the highway is where large sections of pipe for storm drainage are being installed. Storm drain work is also being done on the wetlands section, and from 500 West to Cermak Street.
Businesses in the area might expect temporary water shut-offs as some lines will have to be moved to accommodate the storm drains. They will be notified in advance.
The first application of new pavement from 500 West to 400 North is expected to occur soon, and work to improve the shoulder and install curbs and gutters on the west side of Highway 191 also will take place on the $20.5 million project.
