170th Street Reconstruction with Meredith Drive
This project would provide for the reconstruction of 170th Street from Meredith Drive to Waterford Road as well as approximately 1/4 mile of Meredith Drive, east of 170th Street. Both roads will be reconstructed as a four-lane roadway with left-turn lanes, including grading and storm sewer. 170th Street will include the City’s Complete Street policy, with a 5’ sidewalk and 10’ separate bike lane along the west side of the road. Meredith Drive will include a 10’ trail along the north side of the road. A Traffic Signal will be installed at 170th Street and Meredith Drive. This project has received a State Transportation Block Grant to assist with funding.
The Contractor for this project is C.J. Moyna & Sons, LLC, and Progressive Structures, LLC, joint venture. This project is a two-year project and is anticipated to be completed in the Fall of 2023.

Project Status Update, 06/29/2022:
The Contractor has installed temporary fencing in the corridor. Utility companies are continuing to work on relocations. The Contractor will proceed on Grading work in Stage 1 and water main work in Stage 3 as weather permits and as construction materials become available.
Stage 1A is closed to through traffic; this is the Meredith Drive reconstruction from east of 170th Street to 167th Street. During this stage, 169th Street intersection will be closed, and the 167th Street and 170th Street intersections will remain open. Brush and tree clearing has been completed in Stage 1A, and grading work has begun.
The Contractor is also working ahead on water main and some storm sewer in Stage 3. This water main work will continue through the week of June 27, and will require lane closures when work is done adjacent to the roadway.
Starting Wednesday, July 6, 170th Street will be closed between Plum Drive and Waterford Road. This closure will take 4-5 days to allow the cross-road storm pipe and water main to be installed. Temporary pavement will be installed to allow 170th Street to be re-opened. Immediately after this work is complete, the 170th Street and Meredith Drive intersection will be closed in the week of July 11 for reconstruction. This closure will last several months.
