Bridge construction delays — near Last Chance
WASHINGTON COUNTY — Through October motorists should expect daytime lane closures and alternating traffic on U.S. Highway 36 approximately four miles east of State Highway 71 at Last Chance. When flaggers are present, the speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph. Delays of up to 10 minutes are expected Monday through Friday. Two bridges will be replaced between mileposts 139 and 142. For approximately one month, lane closures are necessary to construct detour roads and stage equipment. When the detours are complete, traffic will return to one lane in each direction for several months during demolition and construction. When temperatures allow in the spring, asphalt milling and overlay will occur followed by detour road removals. Completion is anticipated next summer.
