Summer paving list 2012Paving crews under contract with Washington County’s Department of Land Use and Transportation will soon go to work on several major roads in the urban area. The plan is to cause as little disruption to traffic as possible by doing most of the work at night. The county and its contractor, Eagle-Elsner, Inc., are working together to ensure that traffic moves as smoothly as possible through this necessary but inconvenient road work.

Advisory signs will be posted prior to work starting. The roads will remain open but may be limited to one-way traffic controlled by flaggers. Road users should expect up to 15-minute delays and are advised to use alternate routes during the work.

For current road work schedules, check the Washington County Roads web site at Schedules may change due to weather, contractors' schedules, or availability of materials.

Washington County thanks you for your patience and careful attention to driving.
