185th Ave Paving Continues on Monday February 6

For Immediate Release: Sunday, February 05, 2012

Sponsored by: Department of Land Use and Transportation

Daytime paving work on NW 185th Avenue, which began last week, will continue through Monday, February 6 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The contractor will be working between West Union Road and Tamarack Street, primarily within the northbound lanes of 185th Avenue. They will need to shut down the signal at West Union Road and 185th Avenue for a portion of this work. Flaggers will direct traffic through the intersection.

One lane of traffic in each direction will remain open, but travelers are advised to use alternate routes or anticipate delays. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone's patience.
