The contractors will continue to perform work along Main Avenue South after October 24th, including dirt work, seeding, and bike trail construction on the east side of the road. The contractors will also be installing new traffic signals and curb ramps at the intersection of Main Avenue South and 20th Street South. The traffic signal work is expected to be completed this construction season, and the intersection will have 4-way stop signs in place until the signals are installed. Traffic control will be set up as needed and the public should drive carefully through the construction areas.
It is important to note several new traffic control changes on Main Avenue South. The speed limit on Main Avenue South is 35 miles per hour between 20th Street South to approximately a ¼ mile north of 32nd Street South. In addition, the temporary 4-way stop sign at Main Avenue South and 32nd Street South will be left in place during the fall construction work. City and County staff are studying this intersection to determine if it should continue to be a 4-way stop sign controlled intersection after construction is complete. There will also be a new traffic signal at the intersection of Main Avenue South and 26th Street South, which is scheduled for construction during the summer of 2015.
The City of Brookings, along with our engineering consultants and contractors, would like to thank the public for their cooperation and patience during this important project.
