MURRAY — The city will begin construction on improvements along 5900 South between 700 West and State Street on Monday, April 4. The project will include:

  • Removing and replacing the pavement

Widening and realigning the 300 West intersection to improve safety at the TRAX crossing

Upgrading pedestrian ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act

Replacing curbs, gutters and sidewalks in areas that are deficient

Replacing existing waterlines and storm drains

Crews will be on-site as early as Monday to begin preliminary construction activities such as locating utilities, surveying and placing traffic-control devices. Work will begin at 700 West and move east toward State Street. Construction activities will be completed in three segments.

The first segment will extend from 700 West to Commerce Drive; the second from Commerce Drive to 300 West; and the third from 300 West to State Street. Each phase will take approximately four months.

Local traffic and business access will be maintained at all times; however, traffic will be restricted to one lane with flaggers, and heavy delays are anticipated. Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area if possible. Work will take place six days a week from sunrise to sunset through late fall.
