  • Great question! Sign up here to receive email updates about the latest road closures, best detours and other relevant info regarding the Klondike Road Improvement Project.

  • Utility relocation has begun and the first road closure is scheduled to begin September 4, 2018. 

  • The project is to be completed November 2020.

  • It is anticipated that the crews will be at work from 7am to 5pm. Normal levels of construction noise are to be expected.

  • All property access must be maintained throughout the project.

    In closure areas, the contractor will provide a hard, drivable surface for accessing your driveway.

    In areas where traffic will be permitted through construction, temporary drives will be constructed to facilitate access to properties.

  • The work to be done, particularly for the two new roundabouts, is extensive. Closing the roads to traffic allows the construction crews to work more quickly, safely and cost-effectively, ultimately shortening the construction timeframe and lowering the cost of the project.

    The same reasoning applies to the significant grade-changes that are needed near the railroad crossing and between Venetian Blinds’ entrance and US-52/231. These grade-corrections will improve sight-distance and safety while complying with current design standards.

  • During Phase 1, Klondike Road from Lindberg Road to just south of Cumberland Avenue will be closed.

    During Phase 2, Klondike Road from Cumberland Avenue to Snowdrop Drive will be closed.

    During Phase 3, Klondike Road from Venetian Blinds to US-52/231 will be closed with two-way traffic allowed through construction from Snowdrop Drive to Venetian Blinds.

    Once a field office for construction has been established, phone numbers for on-site personnel will be made available.
