Northwest 11th Avenue between Northwest 149th Street and Northwest 179th Street closed for 60 working days for sewer installation, beginning June 17
Beginning Friday, June 17, Northwest 11th Avenue will be closed between Northwest 149th Street and Northwest 179th Street as a private contractor, Rotschy INC, installs a new sanitary sewer line. Construction requires a 200-foot work area that does not allow for traffic to safely use the road while sewer work is underway. This closure will allow for completion of a project that began in November 2022. The initial approved project-related closure ended in May. This closure extension is necessary for completion of the project.
