With completion of Segment II just around the corner, crews are working diligently on the remaining work to get three new lanes open each direction just in time for summer travel.
As drivers may have noticed, noise barrier installation is complete, landscaping is being installed, and final punch list work is being completed on the bridges. Traffic was shifted to allow for profile milling, and crews have also started paving the final surface layer that will be ultimately be placed across all lanes to create a smooth riding surface throughout the corridor.
Starting this week, day and nighttime closures will be taking place to finish the project; however, traffic will begin using a third travel lane, allowing for at least two travel lanes to be maintained (one in each direction) during the closures. The third lane in the eastbound direction opened Monday, April 8, and will open in the westbound direction as early as Wednesday, April 10.
The Segment II Project is estimated to be complete late spring, early summer 2019.
