Construction on the widening of 94 Street is coming along nicely. 

The project will widen the road from two lanes to four to help ease the high volume of traffic near the community hospital.  

The city expects construction crews to complete work in the next couple of weeks depending on the weather. 

Grant Schaffer, director of fleet, facilities, and engineering for the city, says drivers can expect delays in the area. 

“They’re putting in topsoil and backfilling behind the curbs and along the sidewalk that was installed,” said Schaffer. “That will get things cleaned up while they continue road work.” 

Paving of the new lanes has also finished. Work will now shift to putting in concrete for the center meridians before a final lift of asphalt is installed.
