Here is the schedule for this week and a three-week look-ahead:

Next week, Lawrence plans on shifting the work zone and traffic signals at the upper end of the project farther up the canyon to the junction where they'll start building the seventh and final wall in the north section of the project area. This wall will take approximately three weeks to complete. The photo below is at wall #5 in the north section. They'll backfill this area this week and next and then shift the work zone uphill.

Starting Monday, Lawrence plans on removing the asphalt and reconditioning the subsurface in the south section. Asphalt removal will take approximately four days and reconditioning of the subgrade is likely to take five to six days. Paving in the south section is anticipated to start either the first or second week of October, depending on weather and how the subgrade reconditioning goes. Paving is anticipated to last between three and four days.

I will provide more information on paving dates, travel impacts, and what to expect as the dates become more firm.

In addition to finishing the road in the south section, crews will also be focused on restoring the creek where walls were built occurred.

If all goes well, the south section could be substantially complete in four to five weeks. Landscaping work is likely to continue after the road and stream are finished.

Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you for your time, patience, and understanding.

Have a good evening.
