Excavation and installation of new underdrain will be nearing completion in the 8’ shoulder within this section of the project.

The underpass near the Lower Old Town Trail has been installed and crews are wrapping up backfilling and trail work.

Paving of the newly constructed 8’ shoulder has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date. Traffic will remain using the current pattern on US 7 until the paving is complete.

Traffic: Two-way traffic will be maintained as much as possible.  Alternating one-way traffic will be utilized while crews prepare and transition the traffic onto the traffic detours.  Flaggers will be present to maintain traffic flow.
