NW 26th Street Widening & Resurfacing Project

Polk County will be performing roadway construction along NW 26th Street beginning April 2021 and ending Fall 2021, weather permitting.  NW 26th Street will be resurfaced and widened from a 2-lane roadway to a 5-lane roadway with a center turn lane.  Work on this project also includes concrete curb and gutter, trail reconstruction, storm sewer installation, retaining walls and grading improvements.

Northbound and southbound traffic along NW 26th Street will remain open at all times.  Traffic control and signage will be installed to direct traffic during construction.  Construction will be completed in two main stages:

  • Stage 1 is the construction of the east side of the roadway
  • Stage 2 is the construction of the west side of the roadway

There will be periodic partial or complete closures of adjacent side roads.  Detour signage will be provided for any complete closures.  The trail will be closed when construction begins until work is complete and/or it is safe to reopen the trail.
