New roadway connects Sheridan and Westminster boulevards
(Dec 05, 2013)
A new roadway connection on 98th Avenue between Sheridan and Westminster boulevards will open to traffic the week of Dec. 9.
Located along the north boundary of Hyland Village subdivision, 98th Avenue will provide an alternate route for motorists to bypass the intersection of 92nd Avenue/Sheridan Boulevard or the intersection of U.S. 36/Sheridan Boulevard as they traverse the central portion of the city.
The construction of this link of 98th Avenue was a development responsibility of McStain Homes, the original developer of Hyland Village.
After McStain declared bankruptcy, the city used funds garnered from that developer’s surety provider to construct the street.
The two-lane roadway features on-street bicycle lanes and a pedestrian underpass that provides a safe route for residents of the subdivision to access the Big Dry Creek Trail.
