Microsurfacing three sections of US 36, between Wheeling and Brookfield has been delayed. The project was scheduled to begin next Monday, but will now start on October 9th. The microsurfacing – a high-friction surface treatment – is an enhancement to assist motorists with traction on curved sections of roadway.
During treatment application, crews will narrow US 36 to one lane around each work zone. A reduced speed limit will be in place and flaggers will be at crossovers and intersections. A 16-foot width restriction will be in place.
Crews expect to complete the microsurfacing project on, October 16th. All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
