PROJECT TYPE: Roadway, culvert, and slope remediation

PROJECTED COMPLETION: Summer 2019

SPEED REDUCTION ZONE:  A 40 mph speed reduction zone is in place through the project area. A one-way alternating traffic pattern will be in place as needed during active construction operations. Traffic control personnel will be onsite regulating the flow of traffic. 

WORK SCHEDULED FOR THE WEEK OF 5/20/19:
GENERAL: Work has resumed on the project with crews typically onsite Monday to Friday 7:00am to 5:00pm. Please be advised that equipment/trucks will be entering RT 155 from both Barlow Rd. and a construction entrance on the south end of the project.
