South Industrial Highway Concrete Pavement Repairs and Restriping Project – East Stadium Blvd. to East Eisenhower Pkwy.
CONSTRUCTION UPDATE - September 30
The north end (at Stadium) and the south end (at Eisenhower) will be resurfaced starting Wednesday, September 29 and be completed by Sunday, October 3.
On Friday, October 1, intermittent lane closures will
be in place at either end of South Industrial Highway. At the East Stadium Boulevard
end construction will occur on one half of the roadway at a time and traffic
will be shifted to the other half with one lane being operational in both the
northbound and southbound directions of travel. At the East Eisenhower Parkway end the
road will be closed to northbound traffic during paving activities with traffic
detoured westerly on East Eisenhower Parkway, northerly on South State Street and easterly
on Stimson Street. Southbound traffic will be maintained at this location, and
two-way traffic will be restored at the end of the work day. Flagging
operations at both ends of South Industrial Highway will also be utilized at times while this work is occurring.
ALSO, Ramp work at Stimson and State Streets will reduce available lanes, but all traffic movements will be available: Wednesday, September 29 - Wednesday, October 6.
Please reduce speeds and drive cautiously through work zones for the safety of all. We thank you for your patience.

How might the project affect you?
Northbound bus riders are being shuttled to Briarwood Mall and transferring onto a bus.
Driveway access to all businesses will be maintained within the project limits for the duration of the planned work
Given that the proposed work will be extensive and time-consuming, the work will unavoidably disrupt normal traffic and business operations along South Industrial
Vehicular traffic and bus routes in the vicinity of the project will be impacted as a result of the planned work
Dust, noise, and inconvenience will be prevalent due to the nature of the planned construction
A Virtual Open House was held March 11
An Online Survey
was completed to gauge community understanding of project concepts and to identify concerns that require additional information and community education. The complete survey results
Why is this project being done?
The existing concrete pavement is failing and in need of repair. The infrastructure repair project provides an opportunity to incorporate non-motorized transportation features along the corridor.
By reducing the number of lanes south of Stimson from 4 lanes to 3 lanes, continuous bicycle lanes can be provided along both sides of the entire South Industrial Highway corridor.
