• Construction crews have made a lot of progress removing the old asphalt and prepping for paving, but the project has been delayed due to unforeseen conditions found in the roadway subsurface o The base of the road failed compaction testing and standards, and it has to be replaced prior to re-paving o We believe this was the root cause of the issue and was what led to the road cracking and failing in the first place. o We are going to make the extra effort to repair the conditions of the base layer to ensure the road is built properly • Unfortunately, this means the project will be delayed and will not be finished tomorrow (Friday) as originally scheduled o Crews will begin excavating the road base as soon as possible, and they will replace material as they go to limit interruptions to neighbors and their driveway access. o Weather permitting, we anticipate completing this process and paving by the end of next week, Friday, 11/3 • Please continue to park off-street and out of the construction area during this time. • We appreciate everyone’s patience. • If you have questions, please contact the Town at 970-285-7630 or

The project is expected to take one week, and it is scheduled to be completed by Friday, September 29th - weather permitting. Temporary one lane closures will be necessary during the project, and traffic should anticipate brief holds and delays.
