The Douglas County Public Works Department announces that beginning Monday, September 14, Route 1055 (E 1700 Road) will be closed to through traffic between N 400 Road and N 600 Road.  The closure beginning September 14 extends by one mile the current Route 1055 closure between N 500 Road and N 600 Road.  The closure of Route 1055 between N 400 Road and N 500 Road is for Phase II project work to rehabilitate the pavement and improve ditches in the one-mile section and to reconstruct the N 500 Road intersection.


Route 1055 between N 400 Road and N 500 Road will be opened to traffic through construction on Tuesday, September 29, weather permitting.  Traffic will be carried on the milled asphalt pavement through October 4.  Route 1055 between N 500 Road and N 600 Road will remain closed.


Asphalt surfacing on Route 1055 from N 400 Road to the bridge 0.1-mile north of N 500 Road is anticipated to be laid the week of October 5.  Traffic on Route 1055 between N 400 Road and N 500 Road will be controlled by one-lane traffic signs and flaggers during asphalt surfacing operations.

Beginning Monday, September 21, Route 1055 (Haskell Ave. extended; E 1700 Road) will be closed to traffic between N 1175 Road and N 1250 Road for road reconstruction and bridge rehabilitation work.  The Route 1055 closure will occur immediately following the opening to traffic of relocated Louisiana Street (E 1400 Road; new Michigan Street) south of 31st Street.  The Route 1055 closure will last into December 2015.
