Crews were delayed by the weather but worked early Wednesday to finish paving work. Director of Engineering and Public Works, Brian Boone said, “We wanted to give the road back to traffic as soon as safely possible, and we will be able to open the road today after the paving process is complete. However, there will be a need for some finish work that will be done Thursday or Friday depending on favorable weather.” Boone explained this finish work will require partial lane closures and flagged traffic in the area. Tractor trailers and larger trucks must continue to take an alternate route.
