Just a few more signs, and it's a wrap

With the exception of a few additional signs, Phase 3 of the Summit Cove Loop Project is substantially complete! Our contractor finished the last of the pavement markings, including the green coloring of the bicycle-pedestrian lanes in the school zone.

Thanks to everyone for being patient with the construction during the last two months. We have begun final design work and budgeting for Phase 4, so stay tuned for info on future work.

Paving, striping, revegetation complete

Crews have completed all concrete and asphalt work on this year's phase of the Summit Cove Loop project. Summit Cove Elementary students and parents are taking advantage of the new and improved drop-off zone.

Revegetation and striping are now finished as well, but a few final details remain before this summer's work is complete: Next week, crews will apply green pavement coloring and bicycle and pedestrian symbols to the new bike-ped lanes in the school zone. The new lane striping, in combination with the green coloring and symbols, is expected to have a traffic-calming effect in this area.
