Curbing work is mostly completed. Paving is scheduled for Sept 25th.

Paving is scheduled for 9/24/2018, then crews will begin to pave approach  aprons and gravel the finish grade connections to existing driveways.  This work will eliminate the difficult exits that are happening.  We thank you for your patience during this phase of work.
