Construction of Phase 4 continues with drainage, blasting and excavation work near the west end of the project at approximately MP 16. Expect increased truck traffic on the existing U.S. 20 due to material hauling and deliveries on both the east and west ends of the project. Paving work will be moving from nights to days beginning on August 29. The paving work is being done on the new alignment and should not cause any major delays to traffic on the existing U.S. 20 alignment until September or early October. All other work is taking place away from the existing U.S. 20 alignment.
