Beaver Dam Paving Project: Smoothing out the Rough Edges

Many of you have commented over the past few months about the rough entry on the patch of pavement as you turn south onto Beaver Dam Road when you leave Highway 6 at milepost 33. (See map below.)

We are delighted to let you know that the asphalt will be patched in a multi-phase project over the next few weeks. 

While the goal is for the road to remai
n open during the work, there may be temporary closures or delays that impact traffic.

Here's the timeline for the work:

Monday, August 7:   Asphalt cutting.  No delays, half the road will be blocked at a time.  

Tuesday, August 8 -  Thursday, August 10:   2-3 days of excavation and fill work.  The work will be done to half the road at a time so vehicles may still pass.  There still might be very short delays when moving equipment or dumping rock.  The plan is to do the portions that may impact traffic first thing Tuesday morning. 

Tuesday, August 15 – ODOT will pave starting first thing in the morning and should only take about 4 hours.  Vehicles may experience short delays.
