This work will take place in various locations along State Route 58, between Cottonwood Road and State Route 99, at Terrel Court, and along Truxtun Avenue and Mohawk Street. This work is part of the project development process and is needed to verify existing underground utility locations that could affect elements of engineering.

The utility potholing work is expected to be performed from February 17-28, 2014. Surveying activities will take place March 3-7, 2014. All work is expected to be conducted between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The selected potholing locations include sites on and off the roadways. Lane or shoulder closures may be required while crews are working within the roadway, but the work will be short-term and at least one lane in each direction will remain open while work is underway.

Motorists traveling in the areas listed above should stay alert and pay attention to signage, crews and equipment that may be entering or leaving the work zone. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
