There will no longer be delays for people driving east of the town and those looking to drive into town from the west.
Traffic signals for the construction at the Mill Road overpass were taken down on June 5 and construction is nearly complete.
“All the expansion joint seals were installed throughout the roadway and sidewalks. The asphalt surface has been complete including most of the boulevard works,” said the town's Operations and Facilities manager Travis Rob at the council meeting on Monday evening.
“All the primary line painting has been completed with some secondary lines that are still to be completed.”
There is some flagging work that will need to be completed to finish off the boulevard painting on the southwest side of the bridge but interruptions should be very minimal.
“The contractor right now is completing the remaining site works including landscaping and site cleanup,” Rob remarked.
“They'll be finishing that up and demobilizing completely from the site within the rest of this week.”
Looking now at the 300 block of Second Street, which is one of the 2019 capital projects for the town, pre-construction meetings were held last week.
“As of right now, construction is scheduled to begin on Second Street right after the July 1st long weekend,” Rob noted.
