Curves North of Churchill – Secondary 288  logo

Project Overview

The Curves North of Churchill project will resurface approximately 1 mile of Secondary Highway 288 (S 288), also known as Churchill Road, between Churchill and Manhattan. This project includes grading, surfacing, and seal and cover (chip seal) operations to extend the surface life of the road and enhance safety features. Two aging timber structures will be replaced with concrete box culverts, and four more new culverts will be installed to ensure maximum drainage. Crews will also install rumble strips and new signage, and update pavement markings.

In mid-March, work will begin on the Curves North of Churchill – Secondary 288 project. The initial activity will include installing two new concrete box culverts to replace an aging stockpass and the Camp Creek Bridge structure. This work is anticipated to last approximately two to three weeks. Once irrigation work is complete, crews will suspend activities until late May.

Impacts to the Public

Work will occur on Churchill Road, between Amsterdam Road and the intersection with Meadow View Way. Traffic will be detoured around the Camp Creek Bridge structure for the duration of the project, via the detour shown in the project map.

While work is occurring, travelers should expect reduced speeds and a single lane controlled by signal lights for traffic in both directions. Traffic patterns will return to normal overnight and on weekends.

When traveling during construction season, watch for the “cone zone” and workers on the highway. These workers spend their days working a short distance from fast-moving vehicles, and while they make every effort to work safely, they count on you to pay attention, slow down, and be careful as you pass through a work zone.
