NW Beaver Drive Overlay

Project Description
NW Beaver Drive – Merle Hay Rd. to North Corporate Limits
HMA (Asphalt) mill and overlay project along NW Beaver Drive from Merle Hay Road to the North Corporate Limits (approximately 3.25 miles). Project will include median/splitter island in locations along with recreational trail.

Project Update

As Beaver Driving paving was being finalized, we encountered early closures, longer duration closures than expected and flaggers with inaccurate information. We understand it created frustration and in some cases, driving in circles. Paving did occur faster than expected and meant no closures were required today.

Center striping is scheduled to be completed today, Friday, Sept. 22. The edge striping will be completed following driveway and side street connections reconstruction.

Driveway and side street work will begin on Monday, Sept. 25. When possible, they will be built in halves. However, many driveways are not wide enough to construct in that manner. If that is the case, access across that driveway will be eliminated for approximately two days. We will be reaching out to owners to discuss more precise timing of these closures.
Thank you for your patience as we finalize this project!
