Paving is weather dependent, and inclement weather and wet conditions result in changes to the proposed schedule.

Motorists are urged to use caution when driving on milled surfaces and pay close attention to raised structures in the roadway.  Please take caution as men and equipment will be in the roadway.  Expect Delays.
