W Locust St Resurfacing - Marquette to Division

Asphalt resurfacing on W Locust between Division and Marquette is moving quickly! Next week, the contractor will apply the base, intermediate, and surface layers of asphalt. Here’s what you need to know as we head into the week if you travel this stretch:

  •  Early next week, and specifically Tuesday, the traveling public should use 17th Street and side streets to access locations south of Locust to avoid delays from temporary closures at access points and damage to tires running over hot asphalt.
  •  Watch for changing traffic patterns through the Marquette and Washington Street intersections. Asphalt work will be completed in phases to maintain northbound and southbound traffic.

Work in the eastbound lanes will continue for another week after, to raise utility structures to the new surface. Watch for work to transition to the westbound lanes the week of October 16. 

Resurfacing of W Locust Street between Division and Marquette Streets will begin on September 5 in the eastbound lanes. One lane of travel will be open in each direction. Delays are to be expected. Signals at Marquette and Division will have timing changes to help move traffic, and the Washington signals will be set to flashing and are to be treated as a 4-way stop. North/south travel will only be allowed at Marquette, Washington, and Division; all other streets and alleys will be closed south of Locust. Watch for changing traffic control as work progresses.

The project will include some stormwater system and ADA ramp updates at the intersecting side streets along the stretch. 

All work is expected to be complete by early to mid-December.
