Due to the rains last week paving was delayed. It is anticipated that paving will occur this week (October 24) north of SR 2 as weather and temperatures permit.

Traffic will be switched to one half of the roadway while the other half is being repaved.  The final phase of the project to repair and resurface the commercial corridor between Mentor Avenue and SR-2 will begin October 13th.  Work will be done overnight between 9PM and 6 AM to minimize impact.

The entire project is scheduled for completion by October 30th.

Heisley Road  Work on the project continues. Please be advised that there are no left turns permitted at the intersection of Jackson Street and Heisley Road in all four directions until work on that section of roadway is complete.

The project is expected to be completed late fall.

Jackson Street Final paving in the Jackson Street resurfacing is expected to occur this week (October 24) weather permitting.  Two-way traffic will be maintained with flagger control in the active work zone.

Work is expected to be completed by October 30th.

SR-44 NB Ramp to SR-2 WB  Ramp will be closed for 45 days to perform bridge repair operations effective September 19th.
