Phase Two of Wolf’s Crossing Road Reconfiguration to Begin May 15

A portion of Wolf’s Crossing will be closed to traffic for approximately three days, weather depending

A three-day closure of Wolf’s Crossing Road between the CN Railroad line and 248th Avenue is scheduled to begin Monday, May 15 and last approximately three days,  pending weather or unforeseen circumstances.

Beginning May 15, crews will begin work to construct a temporary connection to attach the new north-south extension of Wolf’s Crossing Road, constructed during the first six weeks of the project, to the existing east-west section. The section of Wolf’s Crossing road between the CN Railroad line and 248th Avenue will be inaccessible to all traffic until work is complete. Upon completion of the temporary connection, traffic will begin using the new configuration and the section of Wolf’s Crossing Road from the new connection east to 248th Avenue will be closed permanently.

Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists to use Eola Road, Haffenrichter Road and 91st Street. A map of the road closure and detour can be found at Motorists traveling in this area are encouraged to allow extra time to get to their destination and use caution while traveling through the work zone.

The closure is part of a multi-phase project designed to widen and realign Wolf’s Crossing Road to 95th Street. The final stage of the project will occur in late 2017 or 2018 and will include the reconstruction of Wolf’s Crossing Road from the point of the temporary connection to the CN Railroad line. This phase will require a multi-week shut down of Wolf’s Crossing Road from the CN Railroad line to 95th Street.
