The State Department of Transportation has been preparing Route 318 for new pavement. The construction project will go from Route 44 to the east across the bridge and will end at the intersection where Route 181 continues to the north and Route 318 turns right and goes to the dam.
On Friday at the pre-construction meeting, we were informed that construction will begin on May 5, 2021 (tomorrow) with the milling of the old surface. Work will commence at 4 am at the intersection of River Road and Route 318 and progressing westward to Route 44. Both portions of Route 318 east and west of the bridge is scheduled to be milled in one day.
New pavement is scheduled to be laid down from May 17-20. The area near the school will be prioritized to minimize school delays. We have been told that flagmen on the site will prioritize bus traffic as well as ingress and
egress from the school. Should anything change with the schedule we will notify
