Armour Blvd Bike Lane Project Slated to Begin This Week

Starting Monday, May 14, Crews will begin micro-surfacing (applying a new layer of asphalt) ahead of the permanent bike lane striping, which will occur a few weeks after the micro-surfacing work. The micro-surfacing work will temporarily effect on-street parking and will also divert traffic around road work in some locations as crews work along the corridor. See message boards on site for further information starting this Friday. Crews will work from west to east along this corridor. Here is a tentative schedule of the on-street parking and traffic impact locations as this micro-surfacing work begins (this is all dependent on weather and schedules may change):

Broadway to Main 05/11/18 to 05/15/18
Main to Gilliam 05/14 to 05/16/18
Gilliam to Holmes 05/15/18 to 05/17/18
Holmes to Troost 05/16/18 to 05/18/18
Troost to Paseo 05/17/18 to 05/19/18

This work will be weather-dependent and crews ask that the public abide by the "No Parking" signs that will be placed along the corridor in advance of the work.
