I-80/I-380 construction

Forevergreen Road

Forevergreen Road Project Location Map

(As of November 4, 2019) The Forevergreen Road interchange, and Forevergreen Road from I-380 to Coral Ridge Avenue are open. Please continue to use caution through the area due to minor finishing work in the area. This new interchange was completed in coordination with the I-80/I-380 interchange project to reduce congestion at adjacent interchanges and allow for a turn-around detour during I-80/I-380 construction while the northbound to westbound traffic is closed. Additionally, it offers a link to a temporary diversion route in case of emergency.

Temporary signals will be installed in 2021 as part of the I-80/I-380 interchange staging work. Meanwhile, permanent signals are planned, and are anticipated to be installed in the fall of 2021.

Project schedule

Beginning in 2018

  • Forevergreen Road construction between Jasper Avenue and Covered Bridge Boulevard: Utilities were relocated. Grading on this section was delayed due to wet soils. Grading was able to be accelerated by using geo-grid and rock, along with cement stabilization in some areas of the sub-grade. Intakes and storm sewers were placed. Sub-base rock (drainage and foundation layer for the pavement) was placed east of the new bridge. The intersection at Kansas Ave was paved. Half of the roadway between Kansas Ave and Covered Bridge Boulevard was paved.
  • Forevergreen Road Interchange: Bridge construction and grading of the interchange bridge approaches and ramps was substantially complete. Grading was delayed due to the wet soils and some work were finalized in early 2019. This work is ongoing into 2019.
  • Fall 2018 included utility work between Covered Bridge Boulevard and Jones Boulevard. The north half of roadway from Kansas Avenue to Covered Bridge Boulevard is complete.

Beginning in 2019

2019 Construction Activities for the Forevergreen Road Interchange and local roadway projects include:

  • Late Winter / Early Spring: Off-roadway work such as clearing trees, storm sewer work, and other utility activities. COMPLETE
  • Spring: Forevergreen Road construction between Kansas Avenue and Covered Bridge Boulevard will include the paving of the second half of the roadway. COMPLETE
