S. Coddington Avenue and West Van Dorn Intersection Now Open

All lanes at the intersection of S. Coddington Avenue and West Van Dorn Street are now open. Construction on the safety improvement project has been temporarily stopped for winter and will resume in spring, 2018.

The project is designed to reduce vehicle crashes by converting the two-way, stop sign-controlled intersection into a single-lane roundabout. Other improvements include repairing and rebuilding adjacent sidewalks, trails and box culvert extensions, and installing a new storm drainage system and street lights.

Phase One construction on S. Coddington Ave. south of Van Dorn St. was completed in September. Phase Two construction on S. Coddington Ave. heading north of Van Dorn St. is 50 percent complete and scheduled to be finished in mid-2018, along with Phases Three and Four on Van Dorn St., east and west of S. Coddington Ave.

At least three legs of the intersection will remain open throughout the construction in 2018. Detour routes will continue to be posted on the project website. Access to adjacent businesses and homes will be maintained at all times.

The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience during construction. For more information on the project, contact Craig Aldridge, City Project Manager, at 402-416-5349 or
