Phase 2 – Douglas Dam Road (SR-139) to south of the I-40 Interchange:
Phase 2 is Complete!
Phase 3 - Boyds Creek Highway (SR-338) to Douglas Dam Road (SR-139):
Phase III crews are actively working on the southbound bridge widening. Pictured below crews are assembling reinforcing steel for the pedestal at the north abutment. Crews are also making progress on gradework including placing basestone and preparing the construct curb and gutter for the new northbound lanes from SR-338 to the bridge.
Work also continues on storm drain installation and utility relocations.
Crews will be working nights this week in several locations throughout the project. The right lane will be closed in each direction throughout the project nightly today (10/14) thru Thursday (10/17) from 6:30pm to 7:00 am. The work they expect to accomplish includes shifting the northbound lanes from SR-338 toward Lee Greenwood Blvd. closer toward the median to make room for removing the old shoulder, removing concrete barrier rail in this same section, and sawcutting the old southbound shoulder in the vicinity of Grandview Drive. Motorists should use extreme caution, expect changing conditions, and allow extra time to get to their destination during these times.
