Roundabout Project at Highway 77/32 Junction Delayed Until Spring

Work has been suspended on the roundabout project at highway 77/32 junction until next spring.

“The reason for the delay is weather,” said Jeff Francis, the highway project manager. “We were hoping to be further along than what we are.”

The roads department has completed grading and culverts. Temporary roads are not quite ready for travel. “The roads need surfaced yet. The weather ran out on us. Asphalting can’t be started and stopped,” Jeff stated. “We didn’t want traffic on the temporary roads until we could surface them.”

The project is set to start again next spring, weather permitting. “We then will surface the temporary roads and redirect the traffic to them while completing the project,” Jeff said.

More information will be available when the project begins again in the spring.
