This work is subject to weather and scheduling. These dates could slip if the contractor cannot comply with our schedule. The DPW will do all we can to notify everyone and minimize impacts.

Please use caution and prepare for delays. If no work is going on, the roadway will be open but people should use caution as the road will be under construction.
