AVALON/35TH/ALASKA PROJECT: This weekend’s closure IS on, so far

11:54 AM: From the “in case you wondered too” file – we hadn’t received official word yet from SDOT on this weekend’s “tentative” plan for a second 35th/Alaska intersection closure, so we asked. SDOT spokesperson Ethan Bergeson responded, “The work is scheduled to occur this weekend, weather permitting.” (The current weekend forecast is for intermittent rain, but that didn’t stop the first closure.) This time, as announced a week and a half ago, it’s an early start, 9 am Friday. Watch for an update on Thursday.

2:23 PM: SDOT has reiterated the plan on its blog – you can read the post here for a refresher on the detour plan and other details (the map is above).

    This has to be the slowest road repair I have seen.  Highways get built 10x faster than this.  Its taken months just to do less than 1/16 of a mile.  I don’t know why they are only pouring 50 foot lengths of concrete in a day.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
