West Shoreway Reconstruction & W 28th/W 45th Street Safety Improvements

Last summer crews worked to pour concrete near West 45th Street. The $41.5 million safety improvements and Shoreway reconstruction are underway. Major work is set to be complete in the fall of 2017.  Minor operations – including landscaping – will continue thru summer 2018.


West Shoreway Reconstruction

  • Replacement of the existing West Shoreway mainline pavement from Lake Avenue/Clifton Boulevard to the Main Avenue Bridge (includes the ramps to/from West Boulevard).
  • Installation of the West Shoreway eastbound exit ramp to West 73rd Street and Edgewater Park (previously closed with the West 73rd Street project due to design criteria).
  • Replacement of the West Shoreway eastbound exit ramp to West 45th Street as well as the ramps on the north side of the West Shoreway.
  • Reconstruction of the Main Avenue/West 25th Street corridor to better accommodate trucks.
  • Installation of a new multipurpose trail along the West Shoreway from West Boulevard to West 28th Street.
  • Wetland mitigation.
  • The reduction in speed limit from 50 mph to 35 mph adds less than 75 seconds of additional drive time along this section of the West Shoreway.
Impacts to Traffic During Construction:  Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction on SR 2 during construction. Overnight lane closures are expected.
