The Highway Division will begin its Spring 2020 roadway reclamation and paving season on Monday May 11th, 2020. Access to homes will be provided at all times, and police officers and/or traffic flaggers will be on site to help direct cars and pedestrians through the work zones. Short term delays are to be expected and we suggest alternate routes be utilized when possible. Please excuse the temporary disruptions and thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this project.
