FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Various road closures on Broadway Avenue and Republic Road planned for June 13-16 have been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.
These closures are related to construction improvements on the Republic Road Phase 3 widening project. This project will widen Republic Road to five lanes from just west of Parkcrest Avenue to Fairview Avenue. The project will include the addition of bike lanes, sidewalks, stormwater infrastructure, gas and water utility renewals, and a new traffic signal at Broadway Avenue and Republic Road.
The estimated cost for construction of the widening project is $2.2 million. The project will be funded through the voter-approved 1/4-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax.
