Road closure set for S. 56th St. starting Wednesday

Posted By:  KLKN Newsroom

The rehabilitation work under way on S. 56th Street will require a total closure of the southbound lanes from Pioneers Blvd. to Highway 2 on Wednesday, October 30.  The closure will begin at 8 a.m., and the work is expected to take less than one day.  Drivers will be detoured east on Pioneers, south on 70th St. and west on Old Cheney to Highway 2.  The closure is necessary to adjust utilities in the roadway.

The project on S. 56th Street from Highway 2 north to Spruce Street includes new asphalt and pavement markings as well as the reconstruction of  pedestrian curb ramps at Shady Creek Road, Edgewood Drive, La Salle Street and Spruce Street to meet ADA standards.  Lane closures will continue during the project, which is expected to be completed by Nov. 9, weather permitting.
