Birch Bay Drive – Pavement Rehabilitation, Jackson Rd to Shintaffer Rd

Map of Birch Bay Drive Pavement Rehabilitation Project from Jackson Rd to Shintaffer Rd

Project Summary

This project will grind and repave 2.25 miles of Birch Bay Drive. The work will be divided into two sections: Jackson Road to Alderson Road and Lora Lane to Shintaffer Road (see map). Improvements will also be made to pedestrian facilities, including replaced sidewalks, ADA ramps, and rapid flashing beacons at crosswalks. 

Project Impacts 

Daytime Work Operations: Expect short-distance and shorter-duration single-lane closures during daytime work for adjusting utility holes and constructing sidewalks, pedestrian curb ramps, and driveway entrances. These closures should have limited impacts on traffic and pedestrians. 

Night Work Operations: All grinding and paving operations will be conducted at night to minimize impacts on traffic and businesses.

During overnight work, please plan for longer-distance, single-lane closures from 7 pm-7 am, Sunday night through Friday morning. This is when crews will grind and repave the roadway within the work area established for that evening’s shift. The work area will move along the project limits every shift as work progresses. This will help to minimize the duration of construction noise at any one location. 

All work areas that receive grinding will be repaved during the same week to ensure a finished driving surface by the weekend. 

Parking: Restrictions will be implemented for parking spots within that evening’s work area (i.e., shoulders, angled parking stalls). These restrictions will be posted near the parking area 24 hours in advance.

Project Benefits

  • Newly paved and striped roadway – improves aesthetic, safety, and riding surface for motorists and bicycles. 
  • Newly established crosswalks – safely access the berm at designated marked crossings with crosswalk stripes and pedestrian-operated rapid flashing beacons that improve pedestrian visibility.
  • Reconstructed pedestrian curb ramps – upgrades existing sidewalk entrances, crosswalks, and driveways to current ADA accessibility standards.
