Jackson intersection work update
Work last weekend at the S Jackson Street and 23rd Avenue S intersection went according to schedule, with the concrete breaking (pictured above) and paving bringing work one step closer to completion at this intersection.
Crews plan to work at the Jackson Street intersection next weekend, July 24-27, to repave the four crosswalk areas of the intersection. More details will be included in next week’s email update.

Phase 1 of the project includes modifying 23rd Avenue between E John Street and S Jackson Street from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction with a center turn lane. This phase of work also includes replacing the water main, installing new pavement, sidewalk improvements, traffic signal improvements, lighting improvements and public art.
