With the slow start to work on Olde Stage Road, I wanted to let you know that milling of the old surface is planned to start next Monday morning, Aug. 22. Work will start from the southern end at Lee Hill Drive and proceed north, then crews will flip around at Leftand Canyon Drive and work on milling the southbound lane. This work is expected to take all week. Expect long work zones, which means delays could range up to 15-minutes. We will do our best to keep you moving as quickly as possible, but alternate routes are advised. Cyclists may want to avoid Olde Stage for the next four to six weeks as the roadway will be in a rough, milled condition until paving is completed.

After milling, crews will start repairing the subsurface in order to make the new roadway stronger. At the same time, crews will be working on widening the southern portion of the road (Lee Hill to the top of the first hill) to create the new four-foot shoulder in the northbound climbing lane. Once this work is done, paving will begin. Paving is expected to take two to three-weeks to complete.

Crews are expecting to have the roadway completely repaved by early October, weather permitting. Additional shouldering, striping, and final cleanup work is expected last until the end of October.

Thank you for your time, patience, and understanding.
