SR 206 Work Begins Friday

Work is expected to start Friday, July 31st on a project to pave SR 206 from the junction of US 2 to Bruce Road.

Drivers on SR 206 may be delayed due to pilot car operation and congestion. There are also possible short term closures on SR 206 at the Bruce Road roundabout when the paving operations are adjacent to that intersection.

Beginning Monday August 3 at 7:00 p.m. until Thursday morning around 6:00 a.m., SR 206 will be closed from the US 2 intersection to Yale Road, for an accelerated grinding and paving operation in this segment.

I'll check on the traffic mitigation plan and see what the plan is to accomodate all that traffic. A lot of time projects like this are scheduled for during off-school hours to avoid problems like this. Not sure what happened in this case but it's already a busy road even without the school traffic. Check back on that one.
