Thank you in advance for your understanding of the delays that may occur as you travel through the construction zone.
The contractor has been on site the last two weeks working on the final items to complete CTH “L” (Janesville Road) from Moorland Road to Lannon Road. As you may have observed, this area has been restricted to one lane of traffic in each direction for the past several weeks and will continue to be restricted to one lane in each direction for the next several weeks.
On Monday, May 6, 2013, the contractor will be making another change to the traffic pattern on CTH “L.” Beginning Monday, May 6, eastbound traffic at the intersections of Parkland and CTH “L” and Bay Lane and CTH “L” will be switched to the inside or median lane. This is being done to allow for the completion of the brick cross walks at Parkland and to allow for the contractor to complete the concrete pavement at the Bay Lane intersection.
Traffic through the Parkland and CTH “L” intersection will still have unrestricted access to Parkland Dr. in both the eastbound and westbound directions.
Traffic through the Bay Lane and CTH “L” intersection will not be able to proceed south on Bay Lane beginning on Monday, May 6. This closure should last for approximately two weeks while the contractor completes the placement of the concrete pavement and the brick cross walks. Bay Lane can be accessed from either Martin Road or Bellview Road.
While the contractor is working on the completion of the Parkland and Bay Lane intersections, they will continue to work on landscaping items throughout the project site. Because the landscaping areas are located throughout the length of the project, it is very difficult to provide accurate information as to where the contractor will be working at any given time. For this reason, we would again like to remind all traffic that the posted and enforceable speed limit on CTH “L” from Moorland Road to Lannon Road is 25 MPH. Also, please be aware that traffic patterns may be switched with little or no notice to accommodate the contactor’s completion schedule, so please exercise caution while driving through the work zone.
Once the work in the Parkland and Bay Lane intersections is completed, the contractor will be scheduling final adjustment of the storm sewer, water main and sanitary sewer structures that are in the pavement areas and will then work on the installation of the final layer of asphalt on the project.
The contractor is still on schedule to have all work on CTH “L” from Moorland to Lannon completed by the June 14, 2013, completion date.
