Dear Stakeholder:
Below please find the project update for the week of September 18 and anticipated traffic control for the week of September 25, 2017.

Cooler Temperatures
With the recent cooler weather, the project team is preparing for paving operations in Sparks before winter. The team anticipates paving the entire roadway width from Pyramid Way to just east of Rock Blvd. in mid-October. Paving operations are temperature dependent and will most likely occur during the day. The team will complete underground utility improvements; install new sidewalk, curb and gutter; and pave side streets prior to mainline paving on Prater Way. Some construction activities including utility improvements, removals and concrete work will continue during the winter months.
