Progress Update

Remaining work to be completed consists of the installation of the safety rail / fence on top of the retaining wall along the west right-of-way of NW Irvinedale Drive between NW 5th Street and NW 9th Street.  All permanent seeding of the NW Irvinedale Drive and NW 5th Street corridor was completed in June.  City staff will evaluate the establishment of the permanent seed in late summer, and direct the contractor to perform overseeding operations when needed in September. -- updated 7/17/19 

This intersection will be fully open to traffic by Monday, June 10.  -- updated 6/4/19  

Remaining work to be completed includes the paving of the sidewalks, the installation of the street signs and pavement markings, the installation of the safety fence on top of the retaining wall, and the finish grading and permanent seeding along the two roadway corridors.  NW Irvinedale Drive will continue to be closed to through traffic from West First Street to NW 9th Street.  NW 5th Street will continue to be closed to through traffic from NW Boulder Brook Boulevard to NW Irvinedale Drive.  It is anticipated that the intersection will be fully open to traffic by the end of May.  MidAmerican Energy will be installing streetlights along the two roadway corridors in either late May or early June. -- updated 5/14/19 

Work is scheduled to begin Monday, April 15.  Work to be completed this spring includes the paving of the third lane of NW Irvinedale Drive, the paving of approximately 150 feet of NW 5th Street to the east of NW Irvinedale Drive, the paving of the 8 foot wide sidewalk along the east side of NW Irvinedale Drive, and the installation of the permanent pavement markings, street signs, traffic signals, and streetlights.  NW Irvinedale Drive will be closed to through traffic from West First Street to NW 9th Street.  NW 5th Street will be closed to through traffic from NW Boulder Brook Boulevard to NW Irvinedale Drive.  The signed detour route for NW Irvinedale Drive utilizes NW Weigel Drive via West First Street from the south and NW 18th Street from the north.  It is anticipated that all remaining work in the vicinity of the intersection and along the NW Irvinedale Drive corridor will be complete by the end of May. -- updated 4/9/19 

The intersection of NW Irvinedale Drive and NW 5th Street will continue to function as a three-legged tee intersection, with the east leg fully closed.  The intersection will function as an all-way stop sign condition until next spring.  The remaining work items, including the paving of the third lane of NW Irvinedale Drive, the paving of the east leg of the intersection on NW 5th Street, the installation of the new traffic signal, all remaining sidewalk and trail paving, and miscellaneous associated work will be completed in the spring. -- updated 12/18/19 

Two lanes of NW Irvinedale Drive have now been paved from north of West 1st Street to just south of NW 9th Street.  The third lane and tapers along the east side will be paved next spring.  It is anticipated that NW Irvinedale Drive will be open to the general public by mid-December; however, it is extremely dependent upon weather conditions over the next two weeks.  The public is warned not to drive on the corridor until all barricades have been removed, as the project remains an active construction zone with numerous items to still complete prior to winter.

NW 5th Street to the west of the intersection is now tied in to NW Irvinedale Drive.  It is anticipated that NW 5th Street from NW Boulder Brook Boulevard to NW Irvinedale Drive will also be open to the general public by mid-December.  NW 5th Street will continue to remain closed to the general public until NW Irvinedale Drive between West 1st Street and NW 9th Street is open.

NW 5th Street to the east of NW Irvinedale Drive will not be permanently paved until next spring, after the third lane along the east side of NW Irvinedale Drive is constructed.  NW 5th Street between NW Irvinedale Drive and NW Greenwood Street will not be open to the general public over the winter; it will continue to remain a dead end with access provided only for the adjacent property owners.

Once opened in mid-December, the intersection of NW Irvinedale Drive and NW 5th Street will function as a three-legged tee intersection, with the east leg fully closed.  The intersection will function as an all-way stop sign condition until next spring.  The remaining work items, including the paving of the third lane of NW Irvinedale Drive, the paving of the east leg of the intersection on NW 5th Street, the installation of the new traffic signal, all remaining sidewalk and trail paving, and miscellaneous associated work will be completed in the spring. -- updated 11/27/18

The retaining wall along the west side of NW Irvinedale Drive just south of NW 9th Street, along with the 24” transmission water main between West First Street and NW 9th Street, are completed.  Remaining utility work includes roughly one week of storm sewer installation and 12” water main lowering at the east leg of the NW Irvinedale Drive and NW 5th Street intersection, along with a small amount of storm sewer installation just south of NW 9th Street adjacent to the retaining wall.  Roadway grading and subgrade preparation will also commence during October, followed by rock subbase placement and concrete paving of the streets in November.  All remaining work is extremely weather dependent. -- updated 10/9/18 

Utility work is ongoing.  Current work includes installation of the 24” transmission water main south of the intersection, followed by the remainder of the storm sewer at the north end of the project adjacent to the new retaining wall.  Once all utility work is complete, the roadway grading and subgrade preparation will commence.  It is anticipated that the intersection will reopen to traffic sometime in November, weather dependent. -- updated 9/19/18
