February 11 & 12: Motorists should expect alternating traffic and flagger control for extended hours on Feb 11 & 12. Single-lane alternating traffic may begin as early as 7 a.m. each day and extend until 7 p.m. Expect delays, especially during peak commute hours. During the extended work hours, the contractor will use a crane to unload and set large concrete box culvert sections. The speed limit is posted at 25 mph with fines doubled in the work zone. The speed limit is further reduced to 20 mph through the curved section of the temporary alignment near W. 56th Place. Speed enforcement is conducted by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. All work is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change. 

Project Overview

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.

What to Expect

  • Improvements to McIntyre Street between West 56th Place and West 58th Avenue began in July 2018 and will continue through the fall of 2019.
  • Motorists should expect intermittent traffic stops and alternating lane closures for equipment access and construction adjacent to the roadway. 
  • Lane closures will be limited to off-peak hours (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.).  Occasional night and weekend work is expected.  
  • A speed limit reduction to 25 mph will be enforced. Fines are double within the work zone. The project is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change.
