A contractor for Washington County's Department of Land Use & Transportation will begin final paving work next week on Bethany Boulevard between Bronson Road and West Union Road starting Monday, May 12 through Friday, May 16 between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. (changed to 7 p.m.) each day. Paving work south of Bronson Road to Cornell Road will begin the following week, starting Monday, May 19 through Friday, May 23 between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes or expect potentially long delays.

Final paving work is weather dependent and will be postponed if the weather changes from the current forecast. During this work, one lane in each direction will generally remain open; however, additional lane restrictions may be necessary at certain times. Traffic signals along Bethany Boulevard will also be shut down during paving work.

This project widened Bethany Boulevard between Cornell Road and West Union Road, including the U.S. 26 overcrossing. Additional improvements include bicycle and pedestrian facilities, street lighting and utility upgrades. The project is funded through the County’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP).
