Glencoe Interchange Work to Resume April 6, 2014

On April 6, the ODOT contractor will begin grinding, paving and striping Glencoe Road and the ramps in the interchange.  This will take place primarily at night.  The work is very weather dependent and will be delayed due to wet conditions.  In general, here’s what to expect (weather permitting):
 *   Beginning Sunday, April 6, the contractor will be grinding, paving and striping Glencoe Road and the ramps.  This will take approximately 3 weeks, primarily at night, weather permitting
 *   Following the paving work, the contractor has about 2-3 weeks of work remaining for ditch and curb work, seeding, installing delineators and cleanup work.  This will be primarily daytime work
 *   In the summer, the contractor will return for another 4 weeks of work.  Details on this will be forthcoming.
This is good news – very soon the road surface and striping on Glencoe Road and the ramps will be much improved and the project essentially complete.
