11th & Fremont (and other Fremont) Improvements
An open house will be from 5 to 7 p.m. April 29 at City Hall, 1101 Poyntz Ave., to discuss safety improvements at the 11th and Fremont intersection, as well as pedestrian improvements along Fremont Street.
North Manhattan Avenue
Work began in January on North Manhattan Avenue improvements that, when complete, will allow for better traffic flow from Kimball Avenue to Research Park Drive. The second phase of the project will close Keen Street, effective April 9, with the Blue Hills neighborhood accessible via Blue Hills Road. On April 16, Research Park Drive will reopen, and temporary access north of the street will close.
Kimball & K-113 Interchange Improvements
Construction at the Kimball Avenue and K-113 interchange will begin Monday, March 9 and continue until May. The westbound outer lane will be closed through the duration of the project. Thru traffic will be reduced to one lane at times, and delays should be expected. The improvements are part of a safety grant program through KDOT that will include traffic signal installation and improvements to the on and off ramps.
Parks and Recreation Office Relocation (City Hall)
Construction on the north side of City Hall, 1101 Poyntz Ave., for the Parks and Recreation office relocation began in January. The north entrance to City Hall will remain open during construction; however, we encourage those using ADA-accessible parking spots to park in the rear of the building and use the ADA-accessible southeast entrance. The sidewalk between the fire station and the City Hall front entrance will be blocked during construction.
CiCo Park Regional Detention
Work began Jan. 12 at CiCo Park to create two "dry" detention areas that will drain completely after each storm event. The storm sewer system, sledding hill south of the pool and landscaping in the area will also be upgraded as part of the project.
