As crews continue to make progress on the N. White Chapel widening project, they will temporarily close the east leg of the Highland St. and N. White Chapel intersection.
Weather permitting, the closure will start after the morning traffic peak on Monday, February 11 and is expected to last until Friday, February 15.
The City’s contractor will be lowering the existing 20-inch water main currently located under N. White Chapel. As illustrated in the map, vehicles will not be able to turn east onto Highland from N. White Chapel or cross the intersection as they drive west. Vehicles can still turn west onto Highland or continue on N. White Chapel. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes and try to avoid the intersection while work is being completed.
This work will continue to move the project along to a completed roundabout in the spring.
City staff is also working with contractors to monitor and adjust signal timing at the SH 114 and N. White Chapel intersection so that traffic is allowed more time to get through the Highland and N. White Chapel intersection.
“As we continue to make progress on this project it puts us one step closer to overall improved mobility along this corridor,” notes Deputy Director of Public Works and City Engineer Kyle Hogue. “Even though construction projects can be frustrating for drivers, we really appreciate the feedback we’ve received along the way. Letting us know when situations get better or worse helps us address concerns as they arise and do what we can to make improvements. Please keep talking to us. Reaching out through our Mobility Facebook page or the website is a great way to get in touch with us.”
