Columbia Road Construction
Columbia Road in front of Altru Health System is being reconstructed from 11th Avenue South to 14th Avenue South. The project will continue through October 2016. At least one lane of traffic will remain open for both northbound and southbound through traffic throughout the duration of construction; however, traffic speeds will be reduced to 15 miles per hour, intersections at 14th Avenue and 13th Avenue will experience reduced turn lane options and complete closures at different phases. Sidewalks will be closed from 11th Avenue South to Knight Drive. Pedestrian detour routes will be signed.
As you plan your route, here are a few tips for easier access to one of Altru’s Columbia Road campus facilities. Please plan for additional travel time to accommodate construction delays.
Phase 2 (July 5- August 24)
- The west side of 13th Avenue south will be closed for reconstruction. Please use the 11th Avenue South or 14th Avenue south intersections to access the Altru Health System campus.
- No northbound to westbound left turns will be allowed at 14th Avenue South or Knight Drive.
- No southbound to eastbound left turns will be allowed at 14th Avenue South or Knight Drive.
- Access to Columbia Road will be temporarily closed at each intersecting street to the east while the applicable intersection is being reconstructed; only one intersection access will be closed at a time. The 13th Avenue South intersection will be constructed in halves, with one-way traffic allowed on the unaffected half.
