Jean Road Lane Closures Throughout the Summer

Beginning in June, when LOSD receives its City permit, traffic on Jean Road will be impacted by lane closures. Traffic flaggers will be present. Improvements to Jean Road will include:

  • Widening the east half to create turn lanes for the school parking lot

  • Undergrounding all electrical and telecommunications utilities & new tie-in to city utilities

  • New street lights and sidewalks

  • Temporary relocation of the crosswalk for the 2019-2020 school year from Schalit Way to Hill Way

  • A flashing crosswalk signal will be added at the crosswalk

  • Temporary sidewalks will be provided for pedestrian traffic between Central Avenue and Bryant Road

  • Total work is expected to take 4 months

What is a good detour during that time?

  • Bryant and either Lakeview or Boones Ferry around the north side

  • Pilkington, Childs and Bryant around the south side
