County Road 50 between Jaguar Avenue and County Road 60 (185th Street) is scheduled to close to traffic on Monday, April 30, weather permitting. A detour route will be signed using County Road 60 (185th Street) and County Road 9 (Dodd Boulevard). During this closure, there will be specific points to access neighborhoods and schools within the closure area as follows:
- Jaguar Avenue neighborhood: Access from/to the south on County Road 50
- Kenwood Middle School: Use 192nd Street to cross County Road 50
- Kenwood Way: Use County Road 50 to Jordan Trail
- Jewel Court: Use County Road 50 to 188th Street
- 188th Street neighborhood (east of County Road 50): Access using 188th Street west of County Road 50
- 185th Street to 188th Street: Use County Road 50 to 188th Street
County Road 50 will close to traffic early in the morning on Monday, April 30. The contractor will begin moving dirt, so private utilities, such as electric and cable, can move their facilities. It will take a few weeks to remove the existing pavement. Excavation of the roadway and storm sewer installation begins in mid-May.
Construction of a temporary road along the south side of Jaguar Avenue begins later in May. It will provide access to the neighborhood during the reconstruction of the County Road 50/Jaguar Avenue intersection.
Schedules are subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
