Westside Blvd Project July Update



Update as of Friday, July 9, 2021

Beginning Saturday, July 10, 2021, Star Paving will be working Saturdays on the Westside Blvd Widening Project. Allowed work hours are 6 a.m.-7 p.m. although crews may not work full days on Saturdays. The contractor is beginning work earlier due to the extreme heat and for the safety of the construction crew.

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.

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.
