The north side of SRR is nearly finished, except for a final rolling,
which will take place tomorrow morning. Much of today was spent
milling (churning) the road to hasten evaporation of the 0.75 in. of
rain which we had during the previous 24 hours. At roughly 11 am
tomorrow, the north lane will be completed and open for traffic. In
the meantime, it is important for all vehicles to stay off the north
lane, because tire imprints will retard the necessary evaporation of
moisture, which means the road won't cure properly.
Once the north lane is open, work will begin on the south lane. The
goal is to complete work on the south lane by 7 pm tomorrow and let
the road cure overnight. Then, if all goes as planned, on Friday
morning the construction equipment will disappear and the road will be
open for normal use. Until then, our volunteers will control traffic,
as in the past two days. Thanks for your patience.
