Nighttime road work to impact several busy roadways

Use Alternate Route SignOur contractor, MC Carlton, will begin nighttime work starting Monday, April 1, 2024 with work happening between 7 PM and 5AM.  This work is being accomplished at night when traffic volumes are much less to minimize impacts to motorists.  Workers will seal cracks with material to help prevent intrusion of water into the road base, thereby extending the life of the asphalt.  Some areas will not be treated that are planned for future replacements such as grind/inlays or overlays of fresh asphalt.  This work is weather dependent and the road surface must be dry.  All work is planned to be completed by the end of April.

Road sections to be impacted (not in particular order):
  • Crater Lake Highway (sections north of Vilas Road to near Fowler Lane)
  • East Vilas Road (Table Rock Road to Crater Lake Highway)
  • Table Rock Road (I-5 overpass to near Antelope Road)
  • West Vilas Road (Table Rock Road to approx. 700' west)
  • Antelope Road (from near Agate Road to Division Road)
  • Pine Street (from I-5 northbound ramp terminals to Bear Creek Bridge near Pilot) - expect traffic signals to be turned off during the work and all traffic to be flagger controlled.
Some of the smaller sections of road will be done in one or two nights of work, however other longer road sections such as Table Rock Road and Vilas Road will take multiple nights.

Traffic impacts in many areas will be minimal as additional lanes or areas are available to keep traffic moving.  In other areas such as intersections, please expect delays up to 20 minutes.

Crack Seal ApplicatorPlease watch for advance warning signs and slow down for workers.  Night work is dangerous due to lower visibility, so slow down and watch for workers and equipment.  Keep both yourself and the workers safe.  Use alternate routes if possible to avoid work areas and obey all traffic control workers and signs.

National Work Zone Awareness Week (https://www.nwzaw.org/) is April 15-19 this year.  Please 'Give 'em a Brake', 'Watch the Cone Zone' and slow down in construction zones.  The theme for this year is: 
"Work Zones are temporary.  Actions behind the wheel can last forever."
Be safe out there!
