Crews have poured the approach slabs for the Comite River & Comite River Relief Bridge and are finishing tying them into the main roadway.
Crews have also continued pouring concrete driveways and installing shoulders and the drain system. Bridge barrier rails should be up by the end of this week.
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.
