Nielson is laying about five miles of asphalt on the road per day after repairing a mechanical problem with the laydown machine that took all day last Friday to complete
The shouldering and signage work on the road will begin shortly.
The contractor feels that the paving should be completed by next week with no unanticipated delays. The shouldering, signage and cleanup working will probably be ongoing into October.
There will be flagger operations controlling traffic during paving and any additional work areas.
Travelers should expect 30–45 minute delays each direction. Please watch for haul truck and any additional equipment awhile traveling the canyon.
