Star Paving is continuing construction on the first phase of the Westside Blvd widening project, which is expected to last through late fall 2021. The entire project is expected to be completed in spring 2022. For now, the following traffic impacts will be in place:

•  Westside Blvd will have westbound traffic shifted and reduced to one lane west of Golf Course Rd.

Please note that the contractor will open up the straight thru lane for westbound traffic on Westside Blvd when possible, but will need to close it occasionally for safety reasons. When there is only one westbound lane open on Westside Blvd west of Golf Course Rd, there may be delays. Motorists should seek an alternate route when possible.

•  Golf Course Rd will have one lane of northbound traffic just north of Westside Blvd.
•  Golf Course Rd will have one lane of southbound traffic just north of Westside Blvd.

NOTE: The contractor has been granted extended hours and may work from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday (Saturday work begins July 10, 2021). The earlier start time is due to the extreme heat and for the safety of the construction crew. The contractor will not be working on Monday, July 5, in observance of the Independence Day holiday, but barricades will remain in place for safety.

COMING LATER THIS SUMMER: The contractor will close Grande Blvd at Westside Blvd later this summer. Advance notice will be provided when a date for this closure is scheduled and a designated detour route will also be provided.

All construction is weather permitting and is subject to change without notice.
