Overnight Lanes Closures for Detection Loop Installation – 82 Avenue and 83 Street

Noise, Notice, Vehicle

July 6, 2020 – Starting on or about July 15, 2020 crews will be installing Detection Loops on 82 Avenue at 83 Street. Detection loops are cut into the road and connected to the traffic cabinet. When a vehicle drives over the loop, or stops on the loop, it will activate the traffic changes. This overnight work will occur from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and is expected to last three nights. To accommodate this work, there will be alternating closures within the intersection.

Crews will be working in the westbound lanes on July 15, the eastbound on July 16, and in the southbound lanes on July 17.  Flaggers will be on hand to assist motorists. 

There will be noise associated with this work such as saw cutting and small machinery moving.  In order to not interrupt traffic during the day, crews will have to perform this work during night hours, however, they will endeavor to complete the noisiest work early in the evening.

To accommodate this work, the public will be impacted in the following areas:

  • Alternating closures of the westbound lanes on 82 Avenue at  83 Street on July 15.
  • Alternating closures of the eastbound lanes on 82 Avenue at 83 Street on July 16.
  • Alternating closures of the southbound lanes on 82 Avenue at 83 Street on July 17.
  • There will be overnight noise associated with this work, primarily saw cutting.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained.
  • Flaggers will be on hand to assist traffic.

During this time please watch for, and follow, all traffic detours and direction of construction personnel.
