TOP PRIORITIES FOR THE PROJECT INCLUDE:

  • MAINTAIN PUBLIC AND WORKER SAFETY

  • MAINTAIN OF MINIMUM OF 1 TRAVEL LANE IN EACH DIRECTION AT ALL TIMES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE IMHOFF BRIDGE REPLACEMENT (SEE BELOW)

  • MAINTAIN FULL-TIME ACCESS TO BUSINESSES AND PROPERTIES

    • Temporary driveways
    • Consolidated driveways with temporary signage
    • Maximize share construction space for utility and roadway construction tasks. 
 
In addition to widening the street and major drainage improvements, West Lindsey will become a "complete street" including continuous bike lanes and sidewalks through the entire corridor. Landscaping, decorative intersections and crosswalks will enhance not just the aesthetics, but also the walkability, of the corridor.

Construction PHASing plan

Installation of the Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) is a major endeavor and will require digging a trench down the center of Lindsey Street. Once complete, this structure will carry storm water all the way to the Canadian River. 

Installation of the Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) is a major endeavor and will require digging a trench down the center of Lindsey Street. Once complete, this structure will carry storm water all the way to the Canadian River. 

  • Step 1: install temporary asphalt pavement on the south & north, sides of existing roadway. Upon completion, traffic will flow in one lane in each direction on the either side as work progresses down the center of the existing roadway.
  • Step 2: dig trench and install storm drainage structure (see image of Reinforced Concrete Box at left). Construction will start at both ends of the Lindsey Street corridor with the storm box from Lindsey Drive proceeding up McGee Drive and the box from Imhoff Creek proceeding up Wylie Road.
  • Step 3: Dirt from the trench will be used to back-fill over the newly installed drainage box and the area will then be covered with TBSC (Traffic Bound Surface Course, a type of gravel) to allow vehicles turn across the street. 
  • Step 4: After the contractor has installed approximately 400 feet of box, they will install the center portion of the permanent concrete pavement.  Box construction will continue in front of the paving operation.
  • Step 5: traffic will then move to the new roadway in the center as the permanent concrete pavement is constructed on the outer lanes.
