Mayor, Public Works Kicked Off Construction on 46th Avenue North and Murphy Road Roundabout and Streetscape Project This Morning
Rains held off this morning as Mayor Karl Dean and Metro Public Works kicked off construction in a ceremonial groundbreaking of the 46th Avenue North and Murphy Road roundabout and streetscape project.
The project will be Mayor Dean’s fourth major Complete Street project and balances multi-modal accessibility with aesthetic and quality of life improvements for area residents, visitors and businesses. The project runs along the 46th Avenue North/Murphy Road corridor between 44th Avenue North and Colorado Avenue. It will include a single-lane roundabout, new on-street parking spots, decorative street lighting and native landscaping.
Construction begins today, and the project is projected to be completed later this year.
