US 36 Microsurfacing at “Brookfield Curves” Begins Friday

Portions of Westbound US 36 in Linn County, will be narrowed to a single lane for microsurfacing beginning Friday.

Crews from Vance Brothers plan to microsurface 0.607 miles of westbound US 36, west of Route 11. This high-friction surface treatment is a safety enhancement to assist motorists with traction on the curved section of roadway commonly referred to as the “Brookfield Curves.”

Crews will narrow westbound US 36 beginning at 7 am.  A reduced speed limit will be in place and flaggers may be in place at crossovers and intersections to assist motorists through the work zone.  A 14-foot width restriction is in place.

Crews expect to complete the treatment on Saturday, Sept. 25 and permanent roadway marking is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 29.  Temporary pavement markers will be in place until that time.
