Update for November 10, 2017
NOTE: This will be the final weekly update for the 2017 Construction Season. Please watch for the updates to start again in Spring, 2018.
- All required asphalt paving is now completed for the project. The current cold weather will delay placement of the remaining concrete flatwork into the spring of 2018. Crews will be placing permanent roadway striping, crosswalk and stop bar markings during the week of November 13th. Once this is completed, all driving lanes will be open to traffic. The temporary signal system at the intersection of Egret and Foley Boulevard will also be removed during the upcoming week.
