Concrete Technologies Inc. (CTI), has been hired by the Cities for the reconstruction of Meredith Drive. The project will be completed in 2 major stages and will start with tree removal in both stages in March. As a part of the project, MidAmerican Energy will need to relocate the existing power lines and their contractor will start trimming trees on February 25th.
Stage 1 will consist of reconstructing Meredith Drive from 156th Street to just east of NW 164th Street. It is anticipated the first phase of the project will start in March or April depending on the weather. Meredith Drive will be closed to all through traffic for this work. 160th Street and 162nd Street will be closed at Meredith Drive. A temporary access will be constructed for the Acadia Subdivision to access Meredith Drive. An official detour route will be established on 156th Street, Douglas Parkway and 170th Street. The Police and Fire Departments will be notified of the closed areas.
Once Stage 1 is complete and open to traffic, the road closures will be adjusted for Phase 2’s construction. Phase 2 construction will consist of the closure of Meredith Drive from the west side of 162nd Street to 170th Street.
