Crews lowered the road by as much as five feet and installed curbs, gutters, sidewalks, drainage systems and pavement. This section of 112th is now finished, with the exception of an asphalt wearing course that will be applied in early fall, weather permitting. This work will not require additional road closures, although traffic delays are expected.

Work along 112th Street East between Fruitland Avenue E and 86th Street East will continue through the fall, although this section of road will remain open to traffic. An asphalt wearing course will also be applied to this section in early fall.

• Adding concrete curbs, gutters, and sidewalks.• Adding an enclosed storm drain system, as well as stormwater treatment and storage facilities.
• Adding a new traffic signal at 78th Avenue East.• Improving the traffic signal at Fruitland Avenue East.
