Commuters get a much-needed reprieve from Diamond Drive roadwork as the project winds down for the season. 

“The first part of Phase 4 is essentially complete,” said Pavement Division Manager Tom Roach. “Phase 5, which is the utilities portion, ran pretty much concurrently with Phase 4 and as of this week is substantially complete as well. We’ve got one more stretch of the project to complete from where we are now to the Omega Bridge starting next spring.”

That project also includes rebuilding the Lemon Lot and Sullivan Field parking lot.

Intermittent lane closures will continue through the next week to 10 days, Roach said, to allow the contractor to adjust manhole and valve covers in the travel lanes and finish miscellaneous shoulder and sidewalk work.
