Here is an update on the Nine Mile paving project.
1. Paving started Monday, June 23 at the Soldier Creek Mine and has progressed up to the summit above Whitmore Park. Traffic has been fairly congested through the Soldier Creek area but it is now easier to get through the construction with the paving operation out of the canyon. The paving will continue during daylight hours Monday-Friday with the exception of July 4. There will be no work in the canyon that day. During paving, there will be flagger operations controlling traffic. Expect 30-45 minute delays each direction. Paving will be on going throughout the summer months. Please watch for haul trucks as you travel the canyon.
2. There will be additional crews ahead of the paving crew finishing other clean up and repairs.
