Contractors with Extreme Excavation will continue working on Hankins Road between Fourth Avenue East and Ninth Avenue East through Sept. 26. As part of the project they will be installing a sewer mainline to connect the new Eastern Sun Subdivision to City services, and widening the roadway as part of the Hankins Road Widening Project that started earlier this summer.
Hankins Road between Fourth Avenue and Ninth Avenue will be closed to through traffic during the project. All through traffic will be detoured around the project by using Fourth Avenue and Ninth Avenue. After Sept. 26, the traffic control plan will revert back to a shared northbound and southbound lane for through-traffic until paving is completed.
Drivers should avoid Hankins Avenue between Fourth And Ninth Avenues — if possible. If driving through the construction area, drivers should reduce their speed, follow all posted traffic controls, and yield to workers and equipment. Speeding fines increase in construction zones. Questions about this project should be directed to Extreme Excavation at 208-544-7625.
