Starting in October 2021, work began to upgrade the 3000 East corridor. Improvements will include intersection expansions, widening roads, adding curb, gutter and sidewalk and improving Active Transportation. The six-phase plan is estimated to take up to two years to complete.
Current Schedule: March 17 - 31
Phase 4 improvements to the 3000 East corridor are about 30% complete! The construction team continues to work in muddy, wet conditions but with remarkable results.
The access to Blue Quartz from 3000 East will remain closed until the improvements are complete.
As improvement activities move south, access to Blue Heron Dr. will be closed from 3000 East. Detours will be marked, and the access will not be opened until all improvements have been completed.
Traffic patterns will stay the same with traffic shifted to the west on 3000 East and the speed limit reduced to 30 mph.
Please obey the posted speed limit and follow all traffic control for the safety of everyone.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes when appropriate. Thank you for your patience.

*Schedule is subject to change due to funding, weather, supply chain disruptions and other unforeseen circumstances.
Speed Limit Reduction: The speed limit through the construction zone has been reduced to 30 MPH. The lower speed is necessary for motorists traveling through the new and changing traffic control and for the safety of crews working in the area.
