It’s day four of the slope stabilization project above Rocky Point on the Manson Highway. According to the Department of Transportation’s Jeff Adamson everything is remaining on schedule as crews continue their prep work.
Which means motorists will continue to see periods of single lane traffic control at the site, three miles east of Manson while crews set up temporary barriers and stage equipment for the slope work.
A thick bed of sand on one lane of the roadway will mean 24 hour a day flagger controlled traffic, including this coming Saturday and Sunday.
Beginning next Monday, full road closures are scheduled to be in effect from 8 AM until 4:30 PM, with the exceptions of 30 minute openings at 10 AM, 12 PM, and 2 PM. A detour involving Winesap and Boyd Roads will be in place.
The project is expected to take about 10 weeks to complete.
