Let's face it the traffic around 34th and Coulter has always been crazy, but it is about to get crazier.  The city will be shutting down two lanes of Coulter to install a new water line.

The two southbound center lanes on Coulter north of 34th will be closed starting at 8am on Tuesday, January 5th.  The lanes are expected to be closed for about 10 days.  The Water Distribution department will be installing a new fire line tap for the new McDonald's construction.  They expect the work to be done by Friday, January 15th.

Traffic will be able to access the left and right hand lanes of Coulter and drivers will be able to move south through the intersection.  Both left and right hand turn lanes of the intersection will be open.

However, with all lane closures and construction expect delays.  If you normally take this route, you might want to find an alternate route for the next few weeks until the construction is done.
