Segment 2

Milling of the Shoulder

Crews will begin to remove a layer of existing asphalt from the shoulder of the southbound lane in Segment 2 the week of October 12 in preparation for paving operations. Although there are no lane closures or restrictions scheduled for Segment 2 the week of October 12, drivers are asked to use extra caution and anticipate brief delays through the work zone. Flaggers may be present to safely allow trucks and machinery to access the work zone.

Seeding Begins
