 Anticipated Traffic Impacts


North Carpenter Road

Current State of Project (Update as of 11/8/2019):
  • Continuing the reconstruction of the southern half of North Carpenter Rd., between Concord Dr. and Grafton Rd.
  • All northbound traffic on North Carpenter Rd., between Valley Forge and Grafton Rd., is detoured per the plans (Phase 3A)
  • All southbound traffic on North Carpenter Rd. is being maintained on the newly constructed concrete pavement (west side)
  • All cement stabilization and drainage has been installed throughout the current phase
  • Focusing on installation of remaining concrete pavement on the east side of North Carpenter Rd. (including intersections)
    • ​Currently scheduled to install curb and gutter from Concord to Beaumont late next week
    • Also scheduled to slipform portions of the mainline pavement from Grafton to Beaumont late next week
    • Once the roadway pavement is completed and backed up, we will focus on possible driveway/sidewalk work

​Please note the project’s phase change below:
N. Carpenter Rd. northbound, between Grafton Rd. and Valley Forge Dr., is now closed. This phase change is necessary for crews to complete pavement widening, storm sewer updates, turn lanes, signal work, and other miscellaneous work within the project limits.
The detour route for northbound motorist is to go east on SR 303 to W. 130th St., north on W. 130th St. to Grafton Rd., west on Grafton Rd. to N. Carpenter Rd., and reverse for southbound motorists. ALL northbound traffic will be detoured. Southbound traffic will be maintained for local traffic ONLYThis phase of the project is expected to be complete in 60 days.​

***Traffic will be maintained in both direction by flaggers should any work occur outside the current closure(s)

​To maintain proper access for the Fire Station throughout construction, temporary traffic signals will be installed (1) at the Grafton Rd. entrance/exit to the Fire Station and (2) just west of the construction zone on Grafton Rd. These lights will work in tandem and will remain green at all times unless activated by the Fire Department in the event of an emergency.
