“They’re aiming to be finished by the end of April and are on track for that deadline,” Edwards added. Minor delays related to utilities have not thrown them off target, he said. As with any urban roadway project, there are always new discoveries underground, he added.
The westbound lanes have been completed and workers are currently engaged in the eastbound pavement. Sections from Ojeman to Bingle and Morris to Pech have been completed, and pavers have been installed in the intersection at Bingle.
Storm sewers from Bayrun have also been completed, and construction crews are working on the sanitary sewers on the west side.
Beyond that, only little bit of work is left to do on the railings on the Buttermilk Creek bridge, Edwards said.
“It’s been slow and steady, but we’re almost there,” he concluded.
