Construction Update 12/9/20

Thank you to everyone for your patience during the recent Bryant Road/Boones Ferry/Firwood Road weekend work! Reconstructing and paving this intersection was a major activity requiring a lot of coordination and resulting in significant traffic impacts. Crews were able to successfully complete the work ahead of schedule, opening back the roads and signal by late Sunday night!

Here are some photos of the work taking place.

 

On Thursday night, 12/10, crews are planning to remove the temporary signal poles and signal heads at the intersection of Bryant Road/Boones Ferry/Firwood Road. Work hours for this activity are 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. The signal will be shut off and flaggers will control traffic at the intersection.

Please plan extra travel time during this night work.

Work Area South of Bryant Road  

The photo featured above is a drone aerial image captured in early November. It shows the progress taking place in the southern area of the project – new sidewalks, wider street, newly paved lanes, and concrete formed and poured for the new landscaped medians.

Crews continue to make great progress on excavating, forming and pouring the new landscaped medians south of Bryant.

Landscapers are also installing irrigation throughout the planters.

Over the next few months, they will start placing soil and installing the plants and trees along the new sidewalk planters and in the new medians. In addition, electrical crews will begin placing the new street lights along the sidewalks.

Work Area North of Bryant Road

Have you walked, rolled or strolled along any of the newly opened sidewalks recently in the project area? A portion of the sidewalks are now open on the east side between Bryant Road and Reese Road! Recently, brick pavers were placed near McDonald’s and Best Sushi, which will eventually be the corners of a new signalized intersection.

Weather permitting, crews plan to prepare the new subgrade and pave portions of this area between Bryant and Reese Road in the coming weeks. In early 2021, the traffic lanes will be shifted so crews can start working on the streetscape improvements on the western side (Banner Bank/Riccardo’s side).

At this time, crews will also likely shift the travel lanes north of Reese Road to begin working on the new sidewalks and medians.

Bryant Road Stormwater Night Work

Stormwater work is now underway on Bryant Road between Upper Drive and Boones Ferry Road. This work is expected to take about two-three weeks to complete.

Due to the high volume of traffic on Bryant Road, this work is being conducted at night with lane closures, and traffic will be flagged from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. While work takes near the intersection of

Bryant and Upper, the signal will be turned off and traffic will be flagged.

Neighbors, please expect an increase in noise and truck traffic during work hours. Thank you for your patience during this work.
