Important Information

The City of Walker is improving Kinney Avenue (from Waldorf Street to Three Mile Road). Kinney Avenue will be reconstructed to include three lanes, a 5-foot-wide concrete sidewalk on the west side, and a 10-foot-wide concrete non-motorized trail on the east side. The storm water sewer system will also be reconstructed to include a culvert at the Nolan drain. The existing sidewalk on the south side of Waldorf Street (from Kinney Avenue to Randall Avenue) will be widened to 10 feet.

City of Walker – Kinney Avenue Reconstruction



Construction has gotten off to a good start. The Contractor has removed the asphalt pavement and has started installing storm sewer pipe. Storm sewer work is expected to continue over the next couple of weeks, then the road will be widened and reconstructed.

Local traffic (destinations between Three Mile Road and Waldorf) are welcome to continue using Kinney Avenue during construction. However, you should give yourself extra time to get to your destination. Please keep in mind that left turns on Three Mile Road onto Kinney Avenue are prohibited.

Trash service and postal service continues to be maintained as best as possible.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as the project is constructed.

Construction is scheduled to start on Kinney Avenue between Three Mile Road and Waldorf Street on Tuesday, June 1.  Sidewalk improvements are also planned for Waldorf Street, west of Kinney Avenue.

Kinney Avenue will be closed to thru traffic during construction. Access to properties within the construction zone will be maintained. A detour will be set up using Three Mile, Wilson and Remembrance.  See map below.

Underground construction is expected from June 3-5 that will impact road access.

  • Residents at #2635 and north will have access from the north.
  • Residents at #2605 and south will need to access their property from the south.


Please allow extra time while travelling in and out of the construction zone and help us bring all the workers home safe each and every day. Thank you in advance for respecting those working on this project.

The project is scheduled to be complete at the end of August 2021.
