36th Street Sidewalk & Curb Work Has Begun
Portions of existing street curbs and sidewalks are being removed to enable placement of electrical conduits, new traffic signal pole foundations, handicap access ramps and/or modifications to curb locations and sidewalks.
Curb and sidewalk sections at the intersections of 36th and Phinney, Dayton and Evanston will be removed over the next several weeks. The entire sidewalk between Dayton and Evanston on the south side of 36th Street will also be removed & replaced later still.
Removal activities will be scheduled to avoid disrupting businesses where possible, while trying to ensure the sidewalks are replaced as soon as possible.
Evanston & 36th Traffic Bulb Going In Soon
The new traffic bulb on the north side of 36th at Evanston will be installed over the next few weeks. An asphalt surface will temporarily serve as a sidewalk along the new curb until other work in the new bulb is completed.

Bridge Way Work Going Gangbusters
Construction on the eastbound off-ramp from Aurora to Bridge Way North is getting seriously down-all the way to the sub-surface storm drain catch basins. After the new catch basins are connected up and new electrical conduits are placed, the final surface elevations will be set, street curbs poured, and the street repaved.
Work on the eastbound off-ramp is expected to continue through the end of the year, then shift westward to encompass the westbound off-ramp. The on-ramp and the work towards Stone Way will follow in the spring.
