E 1000 Road to be closed for Route 458 construction

Tuesday, October 3, 2017 - 4:26pm

Beginning Monday, October 9, E 1000 Road will be closed and impassable to all traffic between N 1116 Road and N 1138 Road to allow replacement of two culverts as part of the Route 458 major rehabilitation project.  While the roadway has been closed to through traffic since the Route 458 project began in late-May, this portion of Route 458 has been travelable for access to local properties within the project limits.  During this full closure, access to local properties along and south of N 1116 Road must be from the south and west. 

 

The replacement of the two culverts between N 1116 Road and N 1138 Road is part of Phase 2 project work.  Replacement of three additional culverts in the E 1000 Road alignment between N 1050 Road and N 1116 Road is also included in Phase 2 work, and will follow this fall, weather permitting.  Following the upcoming full closure between N 1116 Road and N 1138 Road, the full closure area will move south on E 1000 Road to between N 1050 Road and N 1116 Road.  Considering all Phase 2 culvert replacements, it is anticipated that sections of E 1000 Road between N 1050 Road and N 1138 Road will be closed and impassable to all traffic from October 9 to November 22, weather permitting.

 

A signed detour follows US-59 highway to US-56 highway to Route 1029 (E 550 Road).

This construction project is funded by Douglas County’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP).  The Board of County Commissioners awarded the construction contract to King’s Construction, who submitted the low bid of $4,757,901.73.
