Project Update for July 30, 2018
Due to delays in obtaining materials critical to the completion of this project prior to the onset of the upcoming winter storm and flood seasons, construction activities have been rescheduled for the summer of 2019. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this might cause. We anticipate restarting the outreach efforts for next year's construction in early 2019.

The start of construction on this project has been delayed and is now expected to start in late July or early August with construction continuing through November of 2018. Roberts Road will be closed at the bridge during construction with a signed detour in place. We will do our best to provide as much notice prior to the start of construction and the beginning of the associate road closure.
