City crews will begin construction on Watkins Rd. on Monday, March 21, 2022.
This project will widen Watkins Rd. from a two-lane road to a three-lane road, adding a two-way left turn lane. Construction will also include the addition of a left turn lane to all points at the intersection of Mercury Dr. and Watkins Rd.
Work will begin Monday, March 21, and take place from approximately 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. This project is expected to be complete by July, weather permitting.
No road closures are in place; however, vehicular traffic in the areas should be aware of construction activity and follow posted signs and flagger instructions. Please plan for intermittent traffic disruptions and lane shifts during paving.
