Cylicts should avoid the area until paving is complete

Lawrence Construction plans to begin removing and prepping the road on Fourmile Canyon Drive between SH 119/Boulder Canyon Drive and Salina Junction starting next week. Preparatory work will begin on Monday and removals will start on Wednesday. Roadway reconstructon will begin in the north section, between Logan Mill Road and the junction. After the north section is milled, graded, and the first layer of asphalt is applied, crews will move the the south section to apply the final layer of asphalt in that area. Work will take place between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. No full roadway closures are needed, but motorists can expect to see 15-minute travel delays during working hours. We are asking cyclists to avoid the canyon during working hours because the asphalt will be completely removed, exposing the gravel subsurface, and the area will see a significant increase in large truck traffic and heavy equipment using the narrow, winding road.

Operations throughout the canyon will also include work on guardrails, ditches, and landscaping. This work will happen at the same time as the repaving effort. Removals, grading, and paving are anticipated to last until mid-May, and the remaining work is expected to be complete by early July.

Non-residents are asked to avoid the area, if possible, so that construction can be completed as safely as possible.

Thank you for your time and patience as we work to wrap up this project, which is one of the final 2013 flood-related recovery projects in the county.

Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or concerns.

Have a good day.
