ASPHALT MILL & INLAY OF THE 14TH AVE. AND 6TH AVE. APPROACHES
TO US 50 IS SCHEDULED TO BEGIN MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2018
The asphalt roadway approaches of 14th Ave. and 6th Ave. to US 50 will receive a 2” mill and inlay starting Monday, March 12th, Klotz Sand Co., Inc., will be doing the work. Klotz Sand will start the milling operations at 14th Ave. Monday morning March 12th and then proceed to 6th Ave. once work at 14th Ave. has been completed. It is anticipated to take two days to mill both intersections. After milling and until the new asphalt surface is in place there will be a small drop-off as you travel on 14th Ave. and 6th Ave. at the US 50 intersections. No work will be done to US 50.
Klotz Sand plans to place the asphalt surface course starting Wednesday, March 14th on 14th Ave. and on Thursday, March 15th on 6th Ave.
Placement of pavement markings will take place Thursday and Friday, March 15th and 16th. As part of the project, pavement markings will be installed on the east leg of Soule St. at the 14th Ave. intersection, the 14th Ave. and 6th Ave. approaches to US 50, and the north approach of Central Ave. to US 50.
Traffic will be narrowed to one lane in each direction on the roadways when work is taking place. There may be some minor delays on US 50 at 14th Ave. & 6th Ave. as work is taking place. Please be aware of the construction zone, workers, and obey all traffic control signs. With your cooperation, the contractor should move through the project quickly. Work should not be taking place at both intersections at the same time; so if possible use the intersection where work is not being done.
