Construction crews are digging up Empire Blvd. and earth in what used to be Pine Nursery Park for the Empire Extension project. Crews are preparing the area traded to the City for construction of a new roundabout at Purcell and Empire.
The street will be closed from 18th to Purcell for about 4 months as Empire is upgraded and the new intersection converted to a roundabout.
The work is Phase 1 of the plan to extend Empire East to 27th St.
