The next phase of construction for the Kelly widening project will begin today, according to the city. Road work will begin about 1,000 feet north of Covell and will continue north to a point 350 feet south of Coffee Creek.
Work on the $6 million project has an eight-month time frame for completion, said Larry Stevens, city manager. The city’s 20 percent share of the project will be $1.2 million taken from the 2000 Capital Improvement Sales Tax.
Duit Construction/TTK Construction is in charge of constructing a four-lane divided roadway with left turn lanes at all public streets along the project going from Covell to Coffee Creek.
A new traffic signal light will be installed at Kelly and Prairie Village Drive, which also will serve as an additional access point into Mitch Park, Mathis Skate Park and Cheyenne Middle School. The project also includes street lighting and landscaping. There will be 5-foot wide sidewalks on both sides of Kelly.
Kelly will be closed for the first phase of the project to build a new bridge south of Coffee Creek that is adjacent to the Coffee Creek Golf Course.
Vehicles on Covell will be able to access the additions of Hunters Pointe, Hunters Creek, Prairie Village and Coffee Creek, according to a city report. The north end of the project will allow for vehicle traffic on Coffee Creek to access The Villas at Hunters Creek addition and the Coffee Creek Golf Course.
Motorists are advised to expect periodic lane closures to allow for construction activity. Flagmen will be directing traffic when heavy equipment and workers are present.
