11/21/2018 - Santa Fe Avenue Streetscape & Waterline Update

The City's contractor, Smoky Hill, LLC, has completed pavement work on Santa Fe Avenue such that two-way traffic can continue thru the holiday season. Work will still continue in other areas adjacent to the project as further described below:

  • Northbound Santa Fe Avenue at Ash Street has been opened to traffic. Sidewalk and brick work will continue in this block along the east side of Santa Fe Avenue to be completed by the end of December.
  • Ash Street traffic will be shifted to different lanes as the water crews work on main and service lines in the block east of Santa Fe Avenue to 5th Street.
  • Work on two more plazas will begin next week with Spilman and Strand being closed for re-construction.
  • The Sunflower Bank drive-thru entrance on the Santa Fe Avenue side has been closed for widening. Customers can still access the bank via the north entrance off of Ash Street. This work is expected to take about 3 weeks.

Generally, the contractor will focus efforts in smaller areas to mitigate for variations in weather and freezing temperatures.
