Aurora Avenue/100th Street Widening

Project Description:

This project would provide for the widening of Aurora Avenue / 104th Street / Sutton Drive / 100th Street from NW Urbandale Drive to Plum Drive to a three-lane roadway. The street will be widened to 37 feet wide to allow for one lane in each direction plus a painted left turn lane.  A 5’ sidewalk will be provided on the west side of the road and a 10’ trail will be provided on the east side. 

Alliance Construction is the Contractor for this project.

Access and Work Zones:

The project will be completed in four major phases; each phase requires a roadways closure on Aurora Avenue / 104th Street / 100th Street. Meredith Drive will remain open to through traffic in all phases, with occasional lane closures as needed. Please follow posted signs and detours for routing around construction.  Please check back here for updates on closures as work progresses.

Maps will be posted to this webpage with additional information.  The schedule is subject to change based on weather, conditions in the field, and contractor coordination.  Check back to this page for project updates.  As always, please use caution in the construction zone and obey all traffic control, for your safety and the safety of others.  We appreciate your patience, thank you for your cooperation.

Project Status Updated, 06/29/2022:

The Contractor has started work at the south end of the project with pavement removal, water main relocation, and storm sewer.  Phase 1 is now closed to traffic.  The Phase 1 mainline pavement and the south half of the intersection of the UGRA Complex and the townhomes has been poured.  Sidewalks, driveways, and other remaining work in Phase 1 will be completed in the next couple of weeks, weather permitting.   Aurora Avenue will be closed for reconstruction for another 2-3 weeks in this area.  The entrance to the UGRA complex remains open and must be accessed from Meredith Drive.

The Contractor has also started work on the north end of the project with pavement removals. Phase 4 is now closed to traffic.  The Phase 4 roadway has been removed.  The Contractor is waiting for a utility relocation before subgrade preparation and paving can proceed.  Intakes will be reconstructed in the next couple of weeks, weather permitting.   The intersection of Brookview Drive and 100th Street will be patched the week of June 27 and July 4; one-lane access to the Glen Eagles neighborhood will be maintained.  The new pavement requires cure time before it can be re-opened to traffic.  Please use caution in this area.

Please see the map below for the locations of the four phases; this map will be updated when dates are set for the closures. Message boards will be posted on the roadway prior to closures to alert residents of upcoming changes. An official detour route has been established, and the Police and Fire Departments have been notified of the closed areas.
