West Babcock Closure to Begin Oct 14th
Construction is set to begin Oct 14th on West Babcock Street between South 19th Avenue and South 15th Avenue. This portion of street will be closed to through traffic, and West Babcock will be closed to all traffic from addresses 1612 West Babcock
to 1704 West Babcock.
Detour signage will be in place on South 19th Avenue and South 15th Avenue. Businesses in the area will remain open, with access from Main Street and/or South 19th.
It's recommended that residents within the area ‘closed to through traffic’
travel with extra caution during this construction period. Although local traffic and emergency vehicles will be allowed in the ‘closed to through traffic’ area, all modes of traffic are advised to use the proposed detour when possible. Vehicles will be detoured to Main Street or West Koch Street.
The West Babcock Street detour will allow for new water, fire and sewer services to be connected to mains that lie within West Babcock Street. During the construction, underground stormwater will be relocated, and Northwestern
Energy intends to cap abandoned gas lines.
Crews may be working 7 days per week, from 7a.m. to 7p.m.. Detour and closure signage will be in place 24 hours per day.Be advised signage applies to all
modes of travel, including foot traffic. The goal is to complete the street work within 2 weeks, weather permitting.
