Drivers who regularly travel Washington Avenue between 90th Street and the railroad trestle have probably noticed the absence of construction barrels and that traffic is no longer reduced to a single lane in either direction.

The scope of the Highway 20 work included wider lanes, longer and wider turn lanes and improved intersections with better traffic signals where appropriate. Construction got underway earlier this year and wrapped up more or less on schedule; work was expected to complete by Nov. 15 weather permitting.

There are still some construction barrels located at the corners of the Washington Avenue and Highway H/Wisconsin Street intersection, but it is unclear what work at that location remains to be done.

Roadway work actually started at the railroad trestle and extended east to about 1,000 feet past 90th Street.
