Nearing the end of construction season

Construction around the city is coming to an end.

With a handful of projects completed this summer, the focus has turned to finishing work on Normal Boulevard from South to 56th and Superior from I–180 to 27th.

On normal, crews are working to repair concrete panels, curbs and cracks. This work requires full closure from 48th to 56th on normal from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Before and after then, only one lane will be open in each direction.

It's something that residents who live near by understand, but say it can be a hassle to get around.

"Well they do it to make the roads better so it’s usually better when they get done and you just have to put up with some disadvantages while it’s being constructed," Roy Plouzek, lives near construction, said.

Officials say, if completed on time, the project will be done by the end of November.

Fabric Care Center, a local business near 48th and normal is looking forward to that.

"Because this is our busy season as far as comforters and some people may be detoured," Valerie Buskirk, employee, said.

In a different part of town, construction on Superior is nearly complete.

Officials say all that's left is to seal, clean and tighten road joints. It's a process that’ll help minimize moisture on the roads during the winter months and hopefully prevent potholes.

Until its complete superior from 14th to 27th will still have one lane closures.

Work on Yankee Hill won’t be done this year. Officials say the active work will wrap up mid to late November and then go into a winter suspension.
