Traffic meandering through construction on a stretch of Third Street West will get a break soon as the repair work is expected to be completed next week.
Now that curb and gutter work is all but done, the remaining asphalt will be torn up and paving will begin.
“The schedule is to be able to start paving at the end of this week or the beginning of next week,” noted Pat Hickerson, the town’s manager of Operations and Facilities.
The town and contractors were scheduled to meet today to discuss the final details and timeline of the project.
If the weather co-operates, the road will reopen in two weeks and crews will be left to fine-tune the stretch with line-painting and landscaping.
