Hello -

Lawrence Construction and our project managers recently informed me that work remains on-schedule for a fall 2019 completion. While weather and engineering issues have pushed some work back, other items were able to be completed ahead of schedule. Two retaining walls in the lower portion are almost done, and the remaining three are now moving forward and should be complete this spring. In addition to the wall work in the lower work zone, there are still cross-culverts to install, ditches to be cut, and stream and landscaping work to complete, all of which is expected to start in March.

If all goes well, the current plan is to apply permanent pavement in the lower work zone in July. Temporary asphalt may be applied this spring, if weather permits, to provide a better driving surface.

In April, Lawrence's excavation crew will move to the upper project area between Logan Mill Road and Salina Junction to start digging-in at the seven retaining wall sites that need to be built in that stretch.

Lawrence and our project managers believe that the upper portion will be paved this October and the entire project will be complete by November.

Please remember that delays of up-to 15-minutes are possible in the canyon, although crews will do their best to keep them shorter.

Thank you for your time and patience. Please let me know if you have questions.

Have a good day.
