22nd Avenue East / 152nd Street East (CRP 5650)

22nd Ave E / 152nd St E Banner

What's Happening

In the coming weeks, crews will finish installing sidewalk, paving, building the retaining wall on 152nd Street East, and landscaping. The new traffic signal is expected to be activated in mid-June.

About the Project

This work is part of a project to improve safety and operations at the intersection. Work began in August 2018 and the majority of the work is expected to be completed by late June. Pond planting will be done in early October.

Crews will work 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday through the completion of the project.

A traffic signal will be added at the T-shaped intersection. Left and right turn lanes from 22nd Avenue East onto 152nd Street East will be added, along with a left turn lane and a right turn lane from 152nd Street East onto 22nd Avenue East. 

Crews will construct a sidewalk on the east side of 22nd Avenue East and curb ramps at the intersection, install new crosswalks that comply with Americans with Disabilities Act standards, and add new street lights, curbs and gutters. 

In 2018, crews cleared portions of the project site, began widening the south side of 152nd Street East and built a stormwater detention pond on the south side of 152nd Street East. Utility companies also relocated utility lines.

In March 2019, about 600 feet of 22nd Avenue East from where it intersects with 152nd Street East was rebuilt. Crews excavated the road down approximately 7 feet, rebuilt, widened and repaved the road, and applied temporary striping. 

Active Construction, Inc. is the project’s contractor. The construction cost is approximately $2,345,000 and is funded with County Road Funds.
