Early estimates for completion of Stage 2 of the Kimberly and Division project following delays due to weather, subsurface conditions and gas main installation have been revised to accommodate changing conditions. 

Stage 2 and head-to-head travel will continue in the northbound lanes of Division St between 38th and 40th Streets, and the eastbound lane reduction on Kimberly Rd between Wilkes and Division St will remain in place through Monday, August 28th. 

Once Stage 2 is complete, Phase 3 of the project will begin.  During Stage 3, work will flip to the east side, and head-to-head travel will move to the southbound lanes.

While adjustments have been made to the completion date of Stage 2, full project completion will remain October 9th.

Stage 2 of the Kimberly Rd and Division St project has seen additional delays since our June update.  These additional delays are primarily due to unsuitable soil conditions and installation of a gas main.  Issues with soil condition have been resolved and staff anticipates completion of the gas main will be complete by Wednesday, July 19th, allowing remaining construction activities under this phase to be completed.

Head-to-head travel will continue in the northbound lanes of Division St between 38th and 40th Streets, and the eastbound lane reduction on Kimberly Rd between Wilkes and Division St will remain in place through August 14th. 

Once Stage 2 is complete, Phase 3 of the project will begin.  During Stage 3, work will flip to the east side, and head-to-head travel will move to the southbound lanes.​

Kimberly and Division St Widening Project Update 03/09/17.

Since our initial release, the contractor has extended the length of time to complete Stage 1 of this project to 03/27.  Stage 2, which reduces travel down to one lane in each direction on Division St between 38th and 40th Streets, will not begin until 03/27. See the updated schedule and map, as well as information below, for more details on this project.

------------

Work to widen Division St at Kimberly Rd is set to begin the week of March 13th.  The widening project will add both right and left turn lanes for more efficient movement of traffic in this highly traveled area.  Widening will be completed in four stages and will include water main, stormwater, sidewalk and ADA ramp improvements.  Staff anticipates all work will be complete by the end of July, depending on weather.

Stage 1 is anticipated to begin March 13th and be complete by March 27h.  This work will install a water main along the north lane of W 40th St and crossing Rodeo Rd.  Rodeo Rd will be closed to all traffic so the new water main can cross the road.

Stage 2 will begin upon completion of Stage 1 and is anticipated to be complete by the end of May.  This stage will: install a new water main along the west edge of Division St from W 40th St to W 38th St, widen the south bound lanes of Division St to accommodate dedicated turn lanes, establish new residential and commercial street access, and install new sidewalks and ADA ramps.  The new dedicated turn lanes to be established include a right hand turn lane onto westbound Kimberly Rd and a dedicated left hand turn lane onto eastbound Kimberly from southbound Division.

Stage 3 will begin upon completion of Stage 2 and is anticipated to be complete by the middle of July.  Stage 3 will widen northbound Division St to accommodate a dedicated right hand turn lane onto eastbound Kimberly Rd, and install new commercial street access points, new center medians on Division St, and new sidewalks and ADA ramps.

Stage 4 will follow Stage 3 and should be complete by the end of July. This stage includes modifying the center medians on Kimberly Rd and installing new traffic control signals.
