We thank you for your cooperation and patience. Please use caution when driving in construction zones and remember that the posted speed limit is 35 mph in this construction zone
Crews continue removing the existing roadway and rebuilding the road foundation north of the Lovett Road intersection heading north towards Hooper Road. The dirt is brought in to build the sub-base of the roadway. This dirt will be graded and built-up to the necessary elevation for the road base. Once the sub-base is complete, crews will begin placing and compacting stone to build the base course of the road. All this work is in preparation for the next round of pavement pouring which is scheduled for April.
Pile driving operations continue at the Comite River Bridge. At this time crews are driving piles for the new southbound travel lanes of the bridge.
The contractor has begun pouring concrete driveways we have completed the driveways for the Shell Station and GM Cable. 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.
