Delridge/Henderson Intersection Closure Starts Tonight!

The project to rebuild much of Delridge Way SW between SW Orchard and SW Roxbury streets began nearly one month ago, and this weekend crews tackle the the Delridge/Henderson intersection. To reduce impacts to the traveling public the plan is to complete intersection reconstructions in one weekend each – working around the clock. The team begins at 7 p.m. today and plan to wrap up and re-open the intersection to all traffic by 6 am Monday at the latest. For this first intersection of the project, which is in Phase 1, the detour is as shown, in the map below…

NOTE: Evening construction, including pavement removal using impact breakers, may be performed until 10:00 p.m. under the conditions of a noise variance, to expedite construction.

The next intersection on the docket is Trenton, set for construction next weekend, from 7 p.m. February 15 to 6 a.m. February 18. Look for detour details early next week. Meanwhile construction along the roadway between intersections is running smoothly, with installation of 48″ storm drain pipes, as shown here…

Work in Phase 1 is expected to continue through early March, weather permitting.  Phase 2 covers Delridge Way SW between SW Trenton and SW Thistle streets. Each of the first three phases is expected to last up to two and a half months.
