A pavement rehabilitation project in which crews will repair significant cracking, grind off the top layer of the roadway, and replace it with new paving material will start Monday (July 13) from Deary to Harvard on Idaho Highway 9. The work on this 13-mile project will provide a smoother, safer ride for motorists by eliminating cracks and ruts on the road’s surface.
During this project, crews are scheduled to work Monday through Saturday during daylight hours, but may be asked to work some nights to finish the job on time. Drivers can expect a “rolling” work zone, progressing in two-mile sections as the road work progresses.
Crews will finish by applying a double sealcoat on the new stretch of road to seal the surface and provide greater traction for drivers.
Knife River Construction is the prime contractor on this $1.5-million project.
