The resurfacing (or microsurfacing, in this case) project is part of a $1.1 million project that includes Ladd Springs Road S.E. (SR-313) from Spring Place Road (SR-74) in Bradley County to U.S. 411 (SR-33) in Polk County; and Spring Place Road (SR-74) from the Conasauga River to the ramp from SR-60. The planned completion date for all portions of the project is sometime in July.
Georgetown Road is being resurfaced even though TDOT is in the process of widening the same section. However, the earliest work could begin on widening Georgetown Road between Cleveland Middle School and Hopewell would be late 2015 or early 2016, if everything goes exactly right. The resurfacing contractor is Hudson Construction Co., of Chattanooga.
Expect temporary lane closures to move traffic around the paving machine. Officials urge close attention to the advanced flagger signs.
Other TDOT projects include Spring Place Road, which remains closed during construction of concrete box bridges over the Conasauga River Overflow and Conasauga River. Detour signs and message boards are posted in both states to assist motorists.
Local traffic will be permitted at all times to access businesses and residential property within road closure areas. The estimated completion date is October 2013. Also in Bradley County, construction of two concrete box bridges over Greasy Creek and Branch Creek should be completed by the end of this month.
As a reminder, TDOT has changed the completion date to “late fall” on widening Dalton Pike and intersection improvements at Dalton Pike and McGrady Drive/Treasury Drive. The original completion date was set in June.
