Highway 61 & 170th St Closure - Now In Effect

The intersection of old US 61 and 170th Street is now closed.

 

The DOT advised us of a schedule for closure of the old US61 /170th street intersection. This schedule is weather dependent. 
 
Timeline
Late Week - April 2nd Traffic Control Setup For Detour
Late Week - April 9th Closure IN EFFECT
Week - April 30th Intersection Complete
 
This will significantly affect bus, staff, student, and parent traffic. Add in at least an extra five minutes traveling to and from the school campus. A detour map is attached below. Dynamic message signs will be in place directing traffic to the school. The US61 /170th street interchange will remain open, westbound 170th street traffic will be local only.
 
Highway 305 to the north of us has a wide median but expect delays at this intersection in the afternoon. 170th street has 2,140 vehicles daily, Highway 305 has about 300 cars daily. A lot of additional traffic will be added to that roadway. Cross traffic on X43 does not stop at the 170th street or Highway 305 intersection.
