Beginning as early as Wednesday, October 17, 2018, W. 56th Place will be closed at McIntyre Street for up to four weeks (24 hours a day) to install storm sewer improvements, place new curb and gutter, and reconstruct the roadway. Direct access to and from McIntyre Street will not be possible during the work. To access properties along W. 56th Place and affected side streets, motorists will need to enter the neighborhood through the W. 54th Avenue / Pike Street intersection. Refer to the detour map for more information.
Jefferson County and SEMA Construction will construct an additional travel lane in each direction with on-street bike lanes, turn lanes and a center median along with other improvements. For more information on the project, visit the Jefferson County website.

- Improvements to McIntyre Street between West 56th Place and West 58th Avenue will begin in July and continue through the fall of 2019.
