Our prime contractor, Knife River, continues working hard to deliver this project by the planned completion date this fall.
In some respects this project is now looking very close to being done, yet motorists are still asked to avoid the work area for safety and efficiency benefits. Much of the curb and sidewalk work has been completed which really makes the new roadway design start to take shape. Additionally, traffic signal poles are being installed at the intersection of Table Rock Road and Airport Road where they will be turned on as soon as practical.
Drivers in the area should still expect significant delays (up to 20 minutes) as significant work elements need to be accomplished. Paving work is happening at various times as well, and when the final lift of pavement is layed down delays will be considerable again as traffic is kept off the fresh asphalt until it cools to ensure a quality finished product.
So, please continue to enjoy those alternative routes for a little while longer until all the orange construction barrels disappear!
How to get to Costco
Generally, access to Costco off of Table Rock Road will remain open throughout the project, but using Table Rock Road will likely not be the easiest way to arrive or depart. For those coming from the south, use Biddle Road to Pine Street (Biddle turns into Pine) to Hamrick Road as your preferred route or use Interstate 5 to Pine Street to Hamrick Road. When leaving, exit onto Hamrick Road and proceed to Pine Street. In summary, try to stay off of Table Rock Road.
