The work on westbound Hwy 110 is continuing to progress. However, we continue to run behind our original schedule. Crews are aiming to open westbound Hwy 110 the week of Sept. 25. We will continue to update you as dates get closer. There is going to be a few changes over the next couple of weeks as we move closer to the Cold In place Recycling work (CIR).

  • Carmen Ln/Crown Point neighborhood will be allowed to go west from their road to I-35E and will make a U-turn at the signal to access eastbound Hwy 110


As of June 12, the contractor is utilizing nighttime hours (9 p.m.-5 a.m.). This work may include: removals, excavation/grading, installation/removal of shoring, and installation of a box culvert under Hwy 110. These nighttime activities are expected to continue through mid-September.
