Project Update (as of 5/10/19)
The contractor has the final punch list and is working through the items. This list includes, but it is not limited to, removal of debris, minor concrete replacement, grading, final seeding and site clean-up of equipment, signs, etc. Weather permitting, the punch list will be complete by the end of May and the project will be finished.

Project Update (as of 8/29/18)
Paving did not occur on Tuesday, Aug. 28 as the weather conditions were sporadic for the contractor to safely work. The contractor has NOT modified the schedule and plans for full closures on Thursday, Aug. 30 and Friday, Aug. 31. Please see below for the specifics. Trail paving work will also occur during this time rather than Wednesday.

  • Thursday, Aug. 30 - 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 
  • Friday, Aug. 31 - 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 
  • Thursday’s extents will be from south of Theresa Drive to south of the Hyperion Field Club Entrance
  • Friday’s extents will be from south of the Hyperion Field Club entrance to Merle Hay Road
  • The contractor will work from north to south each day and open the road as they complete sections
Please continue to use caution and lower speeds when driving through the construction site. If the schedule changes, notification will be made as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that all of this is weather dependent and could change very quickly. If the work needs to be postponed, notifications will be sent out.

Please use caution through the work zone and use low speeds.
