The contractor will be working Monday thru Saturday for the rest of the summer.
There is a lot of activity on the project right now. Please be cautious of construction vehicles leaving and entering the freeway where work activities are occurring.
• MP 271 – MP 273: Construction of the first portion of the new culverts at MP 270.5 and MP 272.2 will continue. Excavation work along the WB side of the freeway will continue. Drilling for future rock blasting along the WB side of the freeway near the Ladd Creek Interchange will be underway. Drilling was delayed this week due to the need to do some removal work of overhanging material above the drilling operation. An initial blast may take place late in the week. A “rolling slowdown” will take place on both directions of I-84 to create a 20-minute gap in traffic for the blast to be safely conducted and the freeway cleared of any debris. The freeway will not be closed but may be backed up for a short time period. I’ll send a notification when the date and time are confirmed.
• Ladd Creek Rd Interchange: Demolition will be completed and placement of the base slab for the remainder of the concrete box underpass sections should begin. The on-ramp from Ladd Creek Rd to I-84 WB will be closed from 7 AM to noon, and from 1 PM to 5 PM Monday through Friday. A flagger will be present. Emergency vehicles will be accommodated. The EB off-ramp accessing Ladd Creek Rd from I-84 will be open at all times.
• MP 260 – MP 270: No work in this area next week.
