Project Update

Curbing and gutters have been installed from Route 765 down approximately 60 percent of the south side of Dowell Road in Phase One. Storm drain inlet tie-ins and sidewalk installation are currently underway. Asphalt paving of the south side of Dowell Road in this area should begin some time during the week of July 24. After paving and final grading of topsoil behind the sidewalk in this section, continuation of widening on the remaining south side will begin.

Thank you for your patience and please remember to slow down through the work zones to less than 30 miles per hour.
