Construction Update

Construction clipartNovember 2013 - The 2013 construction season is coming to an end. Asphalt paving is complete at both Karst and Castle Rock. Crews will be installing guardrail, striping, and signing the week of October 28th. Crews will also be finishing approaches, topsoil, and other misc cleanup items at both sites. Traffic delays of 15 minutes should be expected at both sites all week.

Starting November 4th, there should be little to no traffic delays as crews prepare for winter shutdown.

Remaining work for the 2014 construction season is to complete the turn lanes at Greek Creek and also put final lift of paving at Castle Rock. Start date for 2014 will be weather dependent but is estimated to be between March 1st and April 15th. There is approximately 3 months of work left on the project.
