(Nov 13, 2013)
Work will begin Monday, Dec. 2, on an eight-month project to construct Orchard Parkway between 136th Avenue and 144th Avenue and 142nd Avenue between Orchard Parkway and Huron Street.
Scott Contracting Inc. is the contractor on the $7.2 million project, which will result in a four-lane roadway on Orchard Parkway from 144th Avenue to 142nd Avenue and a two-lane roadway from 142nd Avenue to 136th Avenue.
142nd Avenue will also be a two lane road from Orchard Parkway to Huron Street.
The work is expected to be complete in September 2014.
Included in the scope of work are new storm water, sanitary sewer, reclaim water and potable water lines; a box culvert through the 142nd Avenue and Orchard Parkway will convey flows for the McKay Outfall; a box culvert to convey flows in the Bull Canal; curb, gutter and sidewalks; and landscape median islands.
In addition, a new traffic signal will be installed at the 142nd Avenue and Huron Street intersection.
