Construction process

The process takes approximately two to three weeks to complete, weather permitting, and is completed in multiple phases.

  • Phase 1: Removal and replacement of concrete, adjusting existing structures (manholes, water valves, catch basins, etc.)
  • Phase 2: Milling of the existing asphalt
  • Phase 3: Asphalt overlay surface course
  • Phase 4: Line painting, landscaping, etc. 

What to expect

  • Digital message boards will be placed at least five days prior to the construction start date in order to provide motorists and area residents with notification.
  • During daytime operations, motorists can expect lane closures, speed reductions, and uneven or rough pavement surfaces.
  • Milling and paving operations may be completed at night, and will include directional closures, or multiple lane closures with major delays.
