Despite the enormous amount of rain, the contractor is pouring turning lanes and intends to continue grading and pouring the new entrance between Theisen's and Noble Ford on Thursday/Friday/Saturday of this week. The first of two critical crossings at the Hillcrest intersection is scheduled to start September 22nd. We will keep you updated with more details prior to the start of construction there. Pole bases for the new signalization is scheduled to start this week as well, weather permitting.
We have asked the contractor to review his detour and directional signage and have made some enhancements in troubled areas.
