On March 27, 2019, DOT&PF awarded the Egan Drive Main to 10th Street construction project to SECON for $14.3 million.
When completed, improvements to the area will include better pavement, improved pedestrian and bike facilities, widened highway where possible, repaired retaining walls and culverts, and more.
Construction is anticipated to start by mid-June 2019 and run for at least two construction seasons. Summer 2019 activities will focus on the stretch of Egan Drive between Willoughby and Whittier Streets.
During this section of construction, Egan Drive will be reduced to one lane in each direction in select work zones. Traffic control may be in place from Aurora Harbor to Main. No left turns will be allowed between Main Street and Douglas Bridge.
Commuters are encouraged to carpool or adjust their schedules to avoid peak traffic hours during construction.
As soon as the construction schedule is confirmed, SECON and DOT&PF will begin detailed public outreach about specific construction activities and expected impacts.
