Cedar Heights Dr. Reconstruction

View the proposed layout of the Cedar Heights Drive Reconstruction Project below: 

For the Week of December 19th, 2021, the City’s contractor, PCI, will be opening the Cedar Heights Drive & Cedar Hill Road Intersection along with the Cedar Heights Drive & Greenhill Road Intersection. During the opening, access to Chadwick Road residences and businesses will be from the original entrance utilizing Cedar Hill Road off of Cedar Heights Drive. Chadwick Road Extension will be closed at Greenhill, but access to Greenhill Family Dental (4507 Chadwick) will remain from the cul-de-sac. 

Cedar Heights Drive will be fully opened southerly to Huntington Road and the existing Viking Road roundabout for the remaining winter months. Starting in spring, work will progress with second half of construction between the existing Viking Road Roundabout, through Huntington Road intersection, and up to the limits of the recent construction. In the spring, Cedar Heights Drive traffic will again be detoured around the construction by posted detour signage on the following roadways: Viking Road, Prairie Parkway, Greenhill Road, and University Avenue. 

During construction, rural type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated to the adjacent side streets. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location. Please do not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only.

2021.12.17 - CHD Opening

Starting as early as Tuesday, November 16th, 2021, the City’s contractor, PCI, will be shifting traffic at the Greenhill Road & Cedar Heights Drive intersection. In order for the contractor to continue with intersection improvements, traffic will need to be shifted onto the newly established pavement on the northern side of the intersection. This traffic switch will remain in place until the intersection is fully completed and fully opened. Work will be dependent on the weather.  

Access to Chadwick Road residences and businesses will remain from the Chadwick Road Extension off of Greenhill Road. Crews will adjust the signal to the northern side of Greenhill for full access through the Chadwick Road Extension.

Cedar Hill Road intersection will remain closed at this time. Paving crews will be working on finishing the intersection over the next few weeks to reopen access for those residences and businesses located south on Cedar Heights Drive.
