NM4 Improvements Project

Expect intermittent traffic control as the contractor completes identified punch list items in order to reach final completion.

Expect striping operations and roadway marking installation on Thursday, August 23. The striping operations occur with at least one shadow vehicle following the striper to allow adequate time for the roadway paint to dry and to prevent traffic from crossing the wet paint. Please do not try to get in front of the shadow vehicles. Intermittent lane closures can be expected when the contractor installs roadway markings such as turn arrows or stop bars.
