As part of the Lakota Safe Routes to School project, crews are scheduled to place the final asphalt overlay from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 29 at the intersection of SW 312th Street and SW Dash Point Road.

Police officers will be on-site to direct traffic. Lane shifts and lane closures will be in effect. Drivers can expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes.

The project is intended to improve pedestrian safety for Lakota Middle School students. The project will add traffic capacity and safety at the intersection, according to the city.

The asphalt work was originally scheduled for last Friday, but was postponed due to fog and road moisture, according to the city. Overall, the project features:

• A new traffic signal with an exclusive all-stop pedestrian phase at the intersection of SW 312th Street and 14th Avenue SW

• A widening of SW 312th Street to three lanes between 14th Avenue SW and SW Dash Point Road

• Replacement of the signal at the intersection of SW 312th Street and SW Dash Point Road

• Additional work includes curb, gutters, an 8-foot sidewalk, planter strip, 5-foot bike lane and street lights along approximately 745 feet of the north side of SW 312th Street and along the south side of SW 312th Street from SW Dash Point Road and 14th Avenue SW.
