The contractor involved in Drexel Avenue reconstruction work is currently focused on installing storm sewer on the east and west ends of the project, City Engineer Mike Simmons said in an update posted on the city's website.
Drexel is closed to through traffic between 13th and 27th streets and is not expected to reopen until the end of November. The contractor, Super Western, and the city's on-site construction representative have made controlling traffic and dust a priority so residents living in the area can safely travel through the construction, Simmons said.
The state Department of Transportation is making steady progress on the new Drexel Interchange as well, Simmons said.

The Drexel Avenue expansion project began in February. Plans call for the road to be widened to four lanes and include a 10-foot wide multi-use path along the north side, on-street bicycle accommodations, street lighting, additional turn lanes at 27th Street and stoplight modifications.
