This project includes the reconstruction and expansion of Rainbow Boulevard, located between Northern Boulevard and Southern Boulevard. The complete roadway reconstruction will include two-12’ lanes, 6’ shoulders and bar ditches; asphalt turnouts with dip sections for the existing platted dirt roadways; some curb and gutter; a new 8 ft wide multi-modal trail in the existing Rainbow Blvd right-of-way between Pecos Loop and Southern Blvd; removal and replacement of all existing signs along Rainbow Blvd; addition of new signs as required by the plans; and the addition of a storm drain system.

Road Closure

From May 9 through mid-September, the intersection of Southern Boulevard and Rainbow Boulevard is closed. This closure will allow for the installation of a storm drain system. Motorists are urged to follow all detour routes and construction signage. Below is a map of the detour route.
