Crews have placed all the girders for the new southbound travel lanes of the Comite River Bridge and the Relief Bridge. They will continue pouring diaphragms, tying steel, and placing deck pans in preparation for pouring the new Comite River Bridge deck pour which should occur in the coming weeks.
Also, crews continue to pour the center turn-lane north of Lovett Road heading to the north end of the project. The new center turn-lane will be 14 feet wide.
Traffic entering and exiting some streets, driveways, businesses and subdivisions will be temporarily inconvenienced while we pour driveways. If your business or residence has two entrances/exits, one entrance/exit will be closed temporarily during construction operations, but the other entrance will remain open allowing access to your business or residence. If your business has one entrance/exit, we will maintain traffic in and out of the business or residence while crews work across the driveway.
Motorists should expect delays, and we ask that you proceed through the project with caution. Be on the lookout for flaggers and construction traffic entering and exiting the highway, side streets and driveways.
All above mentioned work schedules are subject to change due to adverse weather. Please see public notices for exact times, dates and cancellations.
