There’s excitement in Clintonville, as the Highway 22-156 and Greentree Road intersection re-opens, but construction in the city is far from over.
Road crews continue to make progress, but it’s still a lengthy project.
“We have some time to go here yet,” Clintonville Public Works Director Kray Brown said of the construction’s progress. “We are looking at the mainline paving starting up. They’re going to start doing trimming work on the 25th and what that is, is basically grading. It’s going to be concrete from 156 all the way through matching into the existing concrete downtown.”
Crews will tentatively begin putting in a lane of concrete on Monday, Aug. 28 with the other lane expected to be put in after Labor Day. Brown explains it’ll still be a while before that concrete is derivable.
“Through this process here, we’re looking at tentatively the middle of September before people can actually access within their homes, within their driveways, so we’re looking at pretty much the mid-September before they’re able to get on the concrete and go,” he said. “We don’t want people on it because it’s going to crack.”
While paving is ongoing there will be no access to that portion of Main Street unless in the event of an emergency.
