2020 Clausen Avenue - East Lane Completion and West Lane Start Date

The contractor is scheduled to complete the pouring of the east lane on Monday, weather permitting. The concrete pavement will remain closed to public use while the curing process takes place. Curing is a process that allows concrete to build in strength, over time. The full curing off concrete will take many months, but vehicles are typically allowed to drive on the pavement after 5-10 days. Another update will be sent once the east lane is re-opened for public use. Please refrain from driving on the east lane until you are notified as driving on uncured pavement may drastically impact the concrete. Any individual found driving on the pavement prematurely will be financially responsible for damages. 

The contractor will be removing and replacing portions of the east half of the Clausen/42nd and Clausen/41st intersections next week. There will be no through traffic allowed at either intersection for 1-3 days after the pouring is complete. Please access the west lane of Clausen Avenue from the west during that time. 

The west lane construction is tentatively scheduled to begin during the week of October 12th. Please look for another update next week with an official start date.
