Road Resurfacing for June 20

Road Resurfacing for Tuesday, June 20:
The contractor has completed placing asphalt on Oak Bowery Road from Morris Avenue to Wigdon Road. However, work will continue there tomorrow dressing the shoulders, etc. The contractor expects to complete this work in the course of the day and return to place pavement on Saugahatchee Hills Court.

Traffic will still be able to travel around the moving construction site, but there could be some slowdowns and delays as the crews are working in the roadway. Flaggers will be present to direct drivers, and a pilot car is commonly used to escort traffic around the work area. Driving public is asked to drive slow and use caution while near the work areas because of the presence of numerous dump trucks and large, moving construction equipment. Please be aware of this equipment as well as workers that are commonly needed in the roadway.

There are commonly uneven lanes and slight shoulder drop offs as the contractor proceeds down a section of roadway, but these are common hazards with paving that a car can handle if the driver is aware of them.
