Roadway work next week includes completion of remaining concrete and asphalt construction in the north and southbound Coon Rapids Boulevard outside lanes. Traffic is then planned to switch to the outside lanes early next week, so work can begin on the inside lanes and medians. Specific work planned includes removals, storm sewer structure installations, and aggregate base placement. Work next week may include preparation for the new concrete median barrier installations which will replace existing guardrail segments from the Coon Rapids Boulevard overpass to southeast of Avocet/Zilla Street.
Bridge rehabilitation work will also switch to the inside lanes for both the north and southbound directions of Coon Rapids Boulevard over the BNSF railroad tracks and East River Road.
