Construction will resume soon on the Route 458 major rehabilitation project from E 800 Road to just north of N 1156 Road. Weather permitting, Douglas County’s contractor, King’s Construction, will resume work constructing shoulders in early- to mid-March. A full road closure will begin in mid- to late-March, weather permitting, to allow replacement of two large culverts near the N 1075 Road intersection. The full road closure is anticipated to be in place for six to eight weeks.
Following the full road closure for the culvert replacements, the road will be opened to traffic through construction during shoulder construction and paving operations for the duration of the project. During this work, two narrow (11’-wide) traffic lanes, one for each traffic direction, will be open through much of the project length. Some construction areas may have one lane temporarily closed with traffic controlled by flaggers. A work zone 35-mph speed limit will be in effect. The entire project is anticipated to be completed in June 2018, weather permitting.
During the full road closure, a signed detour will be in place. The detour follows US-59 highway to US-56 highway to Route 1029 (E 550 Road).
