55th Street NW Construction from West Circle Drive to 50th Avenue NW

Post Date:06/16/2017 9:42 AM

55th Street NW between Fairway Drive and 44th Avenue NW is now open to one-way westbound traffic as of Thursday, June 15th. Eastbound 55th Street NW traffic will remain closed beyond the 44th Avenue NW signal. Traffic will still be allowed in each direction for the short segment of 55th Street NW between Fairway Drive and West Circle Drive (CSAH 22). The detour for eastbound through traffic at 50th Avenue NW will remain along both Badger Hills Drive NW and 65th Street NW for those travelers that wish to access West Circle Drive and TH 52.

Bus riders should pay close attention to changes that may be posted at bus stops in the vicinity of this project.

Project Timeline
This six-stage project has an anticipated completion date of September 1, 2017. The first three stages are nearly complete. Remaining work will focus on the traffic signals at Fairway Place NW/55th Street NW and at West Circle Drive/55th Street NW, along with the last segment of reconstruction in the vicinity of the existing intersection of Fairway Drive/55th Street NW. The work will continue to have major travel impacts to those that travel in and around this corridor.

Pedestrians and drivers are advised to use caution while traveling around and through all construction zones. The cooperation and patience of the public is greatly appreciated during construction.
