As you may have seen, the three-way traffic signals have been installed at Salina Junction. Those signals will be in place for the next two weeks while crews work on shoring up the work zone for retaining wall construction. Construction at this location is likely to take six weeks, but the road will only be reduced to one lane for two weeks.

Weather and the Thanksgiving holiday slowed work at various sites, but operations have returned to normal this week. Work continues at the wall sites up from Logan Mill Road. If weather holds steady, crews should be able to complete items necessary to reduce the length of this single-lane, signal-controlled zone by Friday, Dec. 13, which will shorten wait times.

A broken excavator has hampered stream restoration activity in the southern work zone, but it should be repaired and operations should resume this week. Final guardrail is planned to be complete in the south section by Friday, Dec. 20.

No work will take place from Monday, Dec. 23 through Friday, Dec. 27. Cycling will be permitted during the holiday shutdown.

The current plan is to have all of Fourmile Canyon Drive returned to two lanes by the week of Dec. 23. Construction work will continue into late January 2020 before the winter suspension, but all work zones during the weeks before the suspension will be controlled by flaggers during the day and returned to two-lanes in the evening and on weekends. Lawrence's current plan is to return in May, weather permitting, to complete the remaining aspects of the project.

Here is the three-week look ahead schedule provided by Lawrence today:

Please drive slow and use caution when moving through active construction zones. There have been some close calls recently and we do not want to see anyone get hurt.

Let me know if you have questions.

Have a good evening.
