11-1-17 West Exit re-opening


The beam guard and the grading around the new pier columns should be completed by tomorrow (Thursday). The contractors will be pulling the concrete barrier off of USH 18/151 and open up the west intersection on Friday. County will patch some bad areas in this intersection before it opens.

So…………come the end of the week, the concrete barrier will be off the 4-lanes and the west intersection for Ridgeway will be opened back up. This will remain open through the winter until spring. At that time, this intersection will be closed again for good. It is closed for stages 2 & 3 next year and then it is removed before we are done as traffic will use the new interchange when the project is complete.
