Upcoming Work

▪ Crews plan to place concrete valley gutters in various locations along the east side of the road. This work is expected to take place mid-August. Once the concrete is placed, the concrete will need to fully cure before traffic will be allowed to drive across the concrete. This curing process can take up to 28 days.
