Final construction activities begin
On Thursday, April 12, construction activities resumed on Douglas Drive between Duluth Street and Highway 55 in Golden Valley.
We will be working on various short-term activities to complete reconstruction of this corridor.
Over the coming months, crews will be:
- Finishing installation of new traffic signals at Highway 55
- Pouring in new medians
- Finishing sidewalks and trails
- Adding streetscapes and landscaping
- Grinding in permanent striping
Expect minor traffic impacts
These final tasks should not require full closures. However, people driving, walking and biking through the area should expect some minor traffic impacts at times. The final activities are expected to be completed by summer.
