Progress Update on Highway 59 Project

Here's information from an e-mail I received today from DOT Project Engineer Tara Weiss regarding the status of the STH 59 relocation project. Also, thanks to Rick Miller from the Milton Courier, I've included a few project photos.

"The STH 59 Relocation Project is progressing as scheduled. The bridges should be completed by Thursday, July 30, 2009. Michels Corp. plans to begin underdrain and base course Thursday as well. In the next couple of weeks, there should be base course from STH 26 to the bridges at the railroad tracks. Michels still plans to begin paving the third or fourth week in August.
Additionally, the median lanes of STH 26 will be closed beginning Monday, August 3 until approximately August 31. These closures are centered at St. Mary's Street and will extend from 1300 feet south of St. Mary's to McEwan. Work will include median turn lanes, inlets, and electrical work for the future signalized intersection." ~ Tara Weiss, DOT Project Engineer (taken from 7/29/09 e-mail)
