North 15th Street will be closed to through traffic between Radio Lane and Skyline Road starting Monday, according to Public Works Director Eric Broce.

During this road closure, through traffic on 15th Street will be detoured east at both Radio Lane and Skyline Road. Access will be accommodated to local traffic only during the course of construction.

The project will be broken into three main segments — north, middle and south — to allow local traffic access at all times, depending on which section of construction is occurring at any given time.

“We are working closely with the USD 470 school district, emergency responders and Public Services Division sanitation crews to provide up-to-date information regarding access,” Broce said.

While construction is occurring on the north portion of the project, local traffic only will have access from the south. During construction of the middle portion, Timberlane residents will have access from the south and residents living on Proffer Lane will have access from the north.

When construction begins on the southernmost portion of the project, both Timberlane and Proffer Park residents will have access to their neighborhoods only from the north.

Detours for local access will be very fluid during the next 45 days. The City of Arkansas City has created a project page for 15th Street construction project updates and detours on the City website.
