Finishing 1st

Road Reconstruction Projects Near Final Stretch

1st Avenue lanes shift to west side

Head-to-head traffic on 1st Avenue has shifted onto the new west half of 1st Avenue through the entire project corridor from 6th Street to 9th Street. This clears the way for reconstructing the rest of the east half of 1st Avenue from 6th Street to 9th Street. Expect the new street paving on the east half to be completed more quickly than the west half. 1st Avenue improvements

Coral Ridge Ave

Coral Ridge Avenue

Work continues on the northeast and northwest corner areas and the east-west crosswalk at Coral Ridge Avenue and Oakdale Boulevard, turn lane and side street paving connections, roadway lighting foundations, and traffic signal installation at Coral Ridge Avenue and University Parkway.
The week of November 5, expect one lane of traffic in each direction to move onto the new Coral Ridge Avenue pavement between Oakdale Boulevard and Wheaton Road. Northbound Coral Ridge Avenue traffic will then shift back to the west half of the road at Wheaton Road while paving work continues on the east half up to Forevergreen Road.
