Douglas Urbanization

Project Description:

This project will urbanize Douglas Avenue from 100th Street to North Walnut Creek by installing curb and gutter, storm sewer, and replacing left turn lanes. This project also includes pavement preservation, with patching in both directions and a mill and overlay for the westbound lanes. A 5' sidewalk will be installed on the south side of the road, and a 5' sidewalk and 10' separate bike lane on the north side of the road, in keeping with the Complete Streets Masterplan.

The Douglas Urbanization project has been awarded to Reilly Construction Company. 

Access and Work Zones:

Douglas Avenue will have reduced lanes in stages. Please follow posted signs and flaggers for routing through construction.

Maps will be posted to this webpage with additional information. The schedule is subject to change based on weather, conditions in the field, and contractor coordination. Check back to this page for project updates. As always, please use caution in the construction zone and obey all traffic control, for your safety and the safety of others. We appreciate your patience, and thank you for your cooperation.

Project Status Update, 09/17/2021:

Douglas Avenue is restricted to a single lane of travel in each direction.  The contractor has filled in the roadside ditch on the north side. Storm sewer boring below the Douglas Avenue roadway is ongoing and will need to be completed before the next phase of paving can begin. Construction of the storm sewer trunk along the south side of Douglas Avenue is ongoing. The bike path on the north side of Douglas Avenue has been removed for a large portion of the corridor. A portion of the trail has been temporarily reconstructed with gravel; take care when using the trail.

Mary Lynn Drive north of Douglas Avenue will be closed Tuesday, September 21 for pavement removal and replacement and utility work.  This closure will last several weeks.

Mary Lynn Drive south of Douglas Avenue and Monroe Court are closed pavement removal and replacement and utility work.

Utility relocation is underway.

Message boards will be posted prior to changes in road closures. Please check back here for updates on closures as work progresses.
