Valley Road Resurfacing - Starting July 18th

posted Jul 18, 2017, 6:57 PM by David Dahlem

From W. Randall Rooke

I have been advised by our Director of Public Works that the next stage of resurfacing on Valley Road has scheduled to start  next Tuesday, July 18th at 6 am. The total length of the road to be resurfaced is 6.6 km (stopping just before the speed corner where Valley Road turns West) ; it is expected to take between 10 and 14 days to complete (subject to good weather) and the thickness of the pavement for this stretch is 50 mils (2 inches). It is expected that the contractor, HJR Asphalt LP, will start in front of Robertson’s Valley Farm and proceed south. There will be no road closures or detours, as traffic will be controlled around the work as it progresses, so expect some delays. Please pass this information on to others the use the road and that may not be Crime Watch Members….and tell them to join !!! Have a great summer.
