Crews also constructed a temporary shoulder “shoofly” traffic lane (towards the train tracks), that provides a work zone for cranes to access the slopes.

This Douglas County project is under construction. A Ribbon Cutting to commemorate completion of the Canyon B Bridge is scheduled for Wednesday May 2nd. An on-line construction camera is in place to monitor the progress.  The next phase, a 3.2 mile extension of Eastmont Avenue, will be advertised for private contractor bids later in May.  The entire project is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2013.

SR 28 East End of the George Sellar Bridge Improvements 
(No traffic impact changes from last week)
Until May,
the new third eastbound lane on the bridge deck remains closed and traffic continues to be detoured to a temporary loop ramp while tunnel installation for the bicycle/pedestrian path continues and the existing ramp is widened. Win wall construction continues at the three precast tunnels that are now in place.
Work off the road also continues on structural earth retaining walls below Top Foods and north of Fred Meyer.
A section of Riverview Drive remains closed to southbound traffic between 3rd St. SE and Mitchell Landscaping (the first business north of 3rd) and is restricted to one-way traffic northbound.
Through Sept. 2012, the southern extension of the Apple Capital Loop Trail from the pedestrian bridge to Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park remains closed for reconstruction of trail sections including three new tunnels where the trail conflicts with the new ramp construction. Bicyclists and pedestrians are detoured to Valley Mall Parkway between 9th and 3rd Streets. (Note the bicycle/pedestrian trail from the east end of the bridge up to Valley Mall Parkway remains open.)

In this $16.4 million project, KLB Construction Co. crews are building a bypass for southbound SR 28 traffic to the west of the Grant Road intersection. It also widens eastbound Grant Road to allow a triple left turn from southbound SR 28. Work began Sept. 6, 2011 and should be complete in spring of 2013.
