TRAFFIC ALERT:

Please be advised that the section of Third Creek Road from South Hinton to Western Avenue will be closed to traffic on Monday, April 20, 2015.  All traffic previously utilizing this section of Third Creek Road will need to detour to South Hinton Road for access.  This closure is necessary for the construction of the new alignment of Third Creek Road to Western Avenue.  This will involve grading, drainage, storm sewer installation and utility installation.

Project Progress Information (as of March 31, 2015):

The project is proceeding with the beginning of the 2015 work season.  The contractor has crews working in several locations throughout the project.  The areas from west of Schaad Road to McKamey Road are currently being paved with concrete sidewalks.  After this is completed, the contractor will continue with finish grading and the placement of sod grassing.

The area of Ball Camp Pike and Matlock Road is currently under construction.  The contractor is constructing two large concrete box culvert drainage structures.  When this is completed, the contractor will continue working in the area by placing dirt fill material in order to raise the grade and provide a new access from Matlock Road to Western Avenue.  During these operations, the intersection of Matlock Road and Ball Camp Pike will remain closed until grading and paving operations can be completed on the new alignment of Matlock Road.  There will also be a time where Dewine Road will be closed at Ball Camp Pike in order to perform grading and paving operations to tie in to the new alignment of Matlock Road.

The contractor will also be continuing to work along Western Avenue from McKamey Road to the end of the project at Copper Kettle Road.   These operations will include new utility line installation, grading, base stone, storm drain culvert installation, concrete curb and gutter, and asphalt paving. 

Currently, the intersection of North Hinton Road and Western Avenue is closed for construction operations including new storm drain culverts and paving.  As utility work has now been completed on South Hinton Road, these operations can continue with the re-opening of North Hinton Road anticipated within the next two weeks.

The contractor is working to begin the installation of street lighting throughout the project.
