West 1st Street/HWY 57 Expansion- For the week of July 19, the contractor continues the last phase of the project. Construction will be focused around the northern lanes on W. 1st Street/HWY 57 adjacent to the Hudson Road intersection, North Genevieve Street intersection, and North Ellen Street intersection. Work will include underground utility-related work, paving, and Right-of-Way restoration. A closure of the northern lanes will be required. East and Westbound head-to-head traffic will be maintained throughout construction. The intersection of W. 1st Street/Highway 57 and Hudson Road will be maintained throughout construction. Trailered vehicles should choose alternative routes to avoid turning at the intersection. A reminder that starting the week of July 12, a traffic pattern change shifted W.1st Street/ HWY 57 head-to-head traffic on the newly constructed southern lanes as crews start on the north half.
