The contractor is finishing up their grading work and placing erosion control device today and tomorrow. They plan to start paving later this week or early next week. They still need to finalize their paving schedule. They will start at the Cedar River bridge and pave towards the interstate. They will progress about 1/4 - 1/3 mile each day. They will keep access to the Cedar Heights subdivisiion at all times. Residents within that subdivision will only have access to the north (interstate) or south (Cedar River) at any given time, but they will always have access to Lewis Access Road.

As a reminder, once paving passes by your entrance you will not have vehicle access for approximately 48 hours. Access will be restored once maturity is reached.

Please contact me with any questions. Thank you for your cooperation!

There has been some confusion regarding access on Lewis Access Road that I would like to clarify. The road is signed as "Road Closed to Through Traffic", meaning local traffic will have access. However, this doesn't necessarily guarantee local traffic will be able to drive all the way through the project. It means local traffic will have access to their properties from some direction (not necessarily from the direction you are used to taking). Also, local traffic may have to wait a few minutes for the contractor to move equipment or finish a task they are working on before you can get through. Although the road is open to local traffic you still may experience delays.

Lastly, the contractor has been working with an excavator on the road top. During this work they have closed the road completely not letting traffic through. Over the past week the contractor has experienced a couple near misses and traffic speeding past equipment and workers. Therefore, they have decided to close the road completely where they are working.

Hopefully this provides a little more explanation regarding access. I understand this does not answer whether or not you will be able to get all the way through at any given time. I will try to provide as accurate and updated information, however, it is a continuously moving operation and accurate updates are not always possible.

Please contact me with any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.

The contractor will continue to work at the I-380 overpass as the weather allows. Due to the wet ditches, the contractor will not be working west of the interstate for the remainder of the week. They are hopefully to resume the culvert and ditch work west of the interstate next week.

Please contact me with any questions.
