Route 1055 between N 400 Road and N 500 Road will be opened to traffic through construction on Tuesday, September 29, weather permitting. Traffic will be carried on the milled asphalt pavement through October 4. Route 1055 between N 500 Road and N 600 Road will remain closed.
Asphalt surfacing on Route 1055 from N 400 Road to the bridge 0.1-mile north of N 500 Road is anticipated to be laid the week of October 5. Traffic on Route 1055 between N 400 Road and N 500 Road will be controlled by one-lane traffic signs and flaggers during asphalt surfacing operations.
Asphalt surfacing on Route 1055 from N 600 Road to N 700 Road is currently scheduled for September 29 & 30, weather permitting. Traffic will controlled by one-lane traffic signs and flaggers during asphalt surfacing operations.
Asphalt surfacing on Route 1055 from the bridge 0.1-mile north of N 500 Road to N 600 Road is currently scheduled to be completed by October 10, weather permitting.
It is anticipated Route 1055 will be fully opened to unrestricted traffic by October 16, weather permitting.
The purpose of the entire project is to replace the large concrete box culvert approximately 0.1 miles north of N 500 Road with a single-span concrete girder bridge, reconstruct the pavement from N 500 Road to approximately ½-mile north of N 500 Road including paved shoulders, and milling, patching and overlaying the remaining pavement in the three-mile long project length. The work also includes channel stabilization at the bridge 0.1 miles north of N 500 Road. Roadside safety will be improved in the vicinity of the bridge by construction of a bridge rail and approach guard rail. A separate project constructed earlier this spring included removing trees within the road right-of-way between N 500 Road and N 600 Road, replacing nine narrow culverts, and construction of paved shoulders at the Route 1055/N 600 Road intersection.
The project is funded by Douglas County’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) along with $165,000 in funds provided by the US Fish & Wildlife Service for stream channel stabilization work. The Board of County Commissioners awarded the contract to Hamm, Inc., who submitted the low bid of $1,795,709.10.
