Eastbound Victorian Avenue between Kietzke Lane and Prater Way will be temporarily closed beginning June 21 and lasting through mid-August. After the eastbound side of the roadway is re-opened, the westbound side will close beginning in mid-August and lasting through October. The closure is to accommodate installation of new, wider more-accessible sidewalks, pavement reconstruction and utility work.
Additionally, the eastbound on-ramp and westbound off-ramp for I-80 at 4th Street will be closed on June 26 and June 27 from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day. Everyone is encouraged to use Wells Avenue or Rock Boulevard to access I-80.
Businesses in the area remain open and accessible. This closure is necessary for median work and to replace a traffic signal with a new upgraded model that will improve traffic flow and provide priority for buses.
These upgrades are part of the 4th Street/Prater Way Bus Rapid Transit Project. The project represents a $58 million investment for the region which will bring greater connectivity in the corridor by improving safety, enhancing transit service to jobs and education opportunities, installing bike lanes and creating opportunities for redevelopment within the redesigned corridor.
