(Woodcox Road will be closed and posted for local traffic only. Woodcox Road is NOT a detour route).

Pulverizing: Pulverizing is scheduled to begin June 3rd and be completed by June 14.  Dust and noise should be expected during this phase of construction.

Resurfacing/Paving: Paving is scheduled to begin June 17 until completed.

The schedule and timeline provided can be affected by weather events.

Culvert replacements along the South Baptiste Lake Road corridor begin the week of April 15-2024.  Residents in the area can expect dust, noise and traffic delays. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
