    The Contractor anticipates beginning to mobilize to the site on September 19th and begin preliminary construction work shortly thereafter. The first 30 days of construction will entail building a new detour road for Waterton Road traffic. Once the detour road is complete, traffic will be shifted onto the detour road so that construction on Waterton Road can proceed.

    Traffic Shift onto Waterton Detour Road

    Weather permitting, the contractor will be paving and striping the detour road for Waterton Road traffic on October 12th and 13th. Traffic is scheduled to be shifted onto the detour road on the morning of Friday, October 14th. Please use caution while driving on the new lane alignments.
