Hamner Avenue will be widened from Alhambra Street to the south end of the bridge and from the north end of the bridge to Schleisman Road. The widened road will feature three travel lanes in each direction, six lanes total.
When complete, the entire 2.6 mile stretch of Hamner Avenue from Sixth Street to Limonite Avenue will have three travel lanes in each direction, accommodating the region’s rapidly growing population.
Road widening construction began in early 2021 and is expected to be completed in winter 2023/24. During road widening construction, travel lanes are expected to be open the majority of the time. Intermittent single-lane closures and traffic control operations may be necessary for public safety due to contractor activities or operations.
PLEASE NOTE: Motorists should expect uneven surfaces on the western bridge span roadway, and the speed limit has been reduced to 35 MPH in the area. Crews continue to monitor the roadway condition and address any weather-related concerns. The final asphalt layer will be placed at the end of project to complete the bridge approaches surface.
