Paving work continues on US 212/310

Thursday, May 21, 2020

Paving continues on the north section of highway on the US Highway 212/310 Rockvale to Laurel Project, and paving activity will continue for the next several weeks. In addition to the existing reduced speeds and minor lane modifications, flaggers may be present this week on the north section to slow traffic as northbound turn lanes are constructed. Trucks will continue to haul from the gravel pit located north of Farewell Road, so motorists are encouraged to exercise caution in that area.

Work zone safety reminder: Remember to manage the Three S’s of work zone safety: speed, space, and stress. Slow down when approaching all work zones. Follow posted speed limits, especially within construction zones, and try to maintain a consistent speed with the traffic flow. Lastly, don’t resume normal speed until you see roadway signs indicating it’s safe to do so.
