Hwy 16 Resurfacing Project Map

Hwy 16 is no longer detoured. The detour ended Friday, Sept. 6.

Crews are finishing paving, shouldering work, guardrail replacement and striping, so there will be the potential for short delays. During the paving, crews work on one lane of the highway and keep the other open. Flaggers and pilot cars are used to ensure that vehicles can go back and forth on the one lane, meaning one direction is stopped to allow the other direction to move through the construction zone and then the other direction is stopped to allow the stopped vehicles to then move through.
