A road improvement project will limit a short stretch of South West Road between U.S. Highway 50 and West First Street. The project will begin Aug. 7, and is tentatively scheduled to be completed Aug. 21.

Homes and side roads on West Road can still be accessed by turning north onto West Road from U.S. 50. Barricades will prevent traffic from entering West Road from First Street.

The West Road project will remove pavement from the northbound lane in order to stabilize and recompact the base of the road. Both lanes of traffic will be repaved. 

The road work is dependent on appropriate weather conditions. Poor weather could delay the project.

The project is being completed by Cornejo & Sons.
