Wing AVENUE RECONSTRUCTION
 

Wing Avenue is now open. This summer, we worked to improve Wing Avenue from 60th Street to 52nd Street. The construction project included reconstructing the road, improving sight distance, safety improvements, new watermain, new storm sewer, new sanitary sewer and an improved trailhead.

The design team worked to retain the natural character of the corridor and to preserve more than 85 percent of its trees.

The City’s contractor, C&D Hughes ensured there was access to all homes along the corridor. Service such as mail, deliveries and trash pick-up also had access to homes throughout the duration of the project.

We appreciate everyone's patience throughout this project.
