Through February 2015, 55th Street will be narrowed to one lane of traffic in each direction between Pearl and Flatiron parkways. There will also be left turn lane closures at the intersection of 55th Street and Pearl Parkway/Valmont Road. The bicycle lane on 55th Street will have temporary closures in both directions and bicyclists will be asked to merge with vehicle traffic. Pedestrian detours will be in place.
