January 11, 2019


Good afternoon,


We're ramping up for the 2019 construction season. Come Spring, we'll have 100 jobs in the works, including the 6/10.


We'll also be working on almost every major artery in the State, including Interstates 295, 95, and 195, and Routes 37, 146 and 6. Some of our bigger projects include the Broad Street regeneration, the Branch River Bridge, the Geneva Pond Bridge, the Howard Road Bridge, and the Plainfield Pike Bridge.


As our crews bring our infrastructure into a state of good repair, we appreciate your patience.

Guardrail and bridge railing installation continues with the 24-hour per day alternating one-way traffic pattern along Route 112 North and South, from Butter Lane to Carolina Mill Lane.

We plan to repair deteriorated catch basins prior to milling and paving the shoulder along I-295 South, from Exit 22 to Exit 20, with right shoulder closures weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Still working behind barrier, no lane closures are planned. We will drill and grout dowels for the bridge deck, and form, install rebar and place concrete for the bridge walls.
