Another long-term ramp closure.
This one’s not Project Neon, but it’s one of the other big NDOT projects we frequently hear about. It’s the one in the northwest valley where eventually US95 will be expanded and improved from Ann Road up to Kyle Canyon.
It started Sunday and is scheduled to run until October 9: you can’t get off the south 95 at Durango. It’s for installation of underground storm drainage.
NDOT has a couple of suggestions if you’re trying to get to Durango. One requires exiting *before* the closed ramp by getting off at Sky Canyon. You take a short drive west to Grand Canyon where you can continue and work your way east to Durango at several cross streets. One of those would be Grand Teton, where you can go east to Osa Blanca and follow around and down to Durango.
If you want to stay on the 95 as long as possible, you can go past the closed Durango ramp and go west at Centennial Center and hit Durango that way.
NDOT says: “The project calls for placing 11,200 feet – more than two miles – of concrete for box storm drainage, along with 400 feet of open channel for the Regional Flood Control District, among other improvements. Construction is halfway done, with anticipated completion in the spring of 2019.”
If there are any updates between now and October 9th, we’ll be sure to pass them along.
Buckle up, drive carefully and put down that phone!
