105th Ave NE reconstruction

The question we’ve been getting over the past month is, “Will the construction project be completed and the road opened up in time for USA CUP?” The answer is yes. The new road was opened to traffic last Thursday morning, July 12.

What used to be a potholed four-lane 50 m.p.h. road cutting through the NSC campus has been repaved and two new access points – three-legged roundabouts -- to the NSC campus have been constructed. One roundabout is situated to allow access into and out of the Main/Super Rink parking lot. A second roundabout just east will access to parking lots on the north side of 105th.
