James Canyon Flood Recovery Project Update – June 19 to June 23, 2017

Hello -

The week of June 19 to June 23 will look a lot like what was seen this week in James Canyon.

Kelley crews will continue installing cross culverts underneath the roadway and this work will progress uphill towards Jamestown. Flaggers will be used to move people safely around the construction zone as quickly as possible. Delay times will vary, but are unlikely to exceed 10-minutes. Waits will more likely be in the range of 3 to 5 minutes.

Stream restoration activities will continue closer to the Lefthand intersection. This work will require short delays when trucks and equipment are entering and exiting the roadway.

Kelley may begin installation of a large box culvert the week of June 26. I should know more about this work next week, but you may see them begin building a shoofly that travelers will use to move around this work zone. Shoofly creation and box culvert installation will require a lot of work, so you may begin seeing an uptick in the amount of machinery and trucks moving through the canyon. I'll provide more information as it is known.

I'd like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as work starts to ramp up. I was informed about some incidents earlier this week and I have been assured that they have been addressed by the contractor and their subcontractors. Wrinkles should be ironed-out as work becomes more routine, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Have a good day and a great weekend.
