Road Shoulder Improvement Project to Bring Delays Along Miller Road & Fletcher Bay Road

Shoulder Improvement Project

Update on Thursday, August 23:

The shoulder widening project along Miller Road and Fletcher Bay Road has been postponed by the contractor, Titan Earthwork, because of a strike by a union (Operating Engineers Local 302) that represents engineers, mechanics and surveyors in the construction industry. Titan Earthwork will send out an update early next week.


Update on Wednesday, August 15:

The shoulder widening project along Miller Road and Fletcher Bay Road has been postponed one week by the contractor, Titan Earthwork. The work is expected to begin on Monday, August 27 and will likely last through the end of November. The improvements are being done to make the roads safer for all users as part of the City’s Core 40 program.


People who travel along Miller Road and Fletcher Bay Road should plan for delays when a shoulder improvement project begins later this month.  

The construction is expected to start on or about Monday, August 20 and completion is expected on or about Monday, October 29. Crews anticipate the work will happen 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday to Friday.

The project involves widening both shoulders of Miller Road from Tolo Road to Peterson Hill Road and Fletcher Bay Road from High School Road to New Brooklyn Road.

At various times during construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane with flaggers, so drivers should expect delays or use alternate routes as this is a heavily traveled area.

 “Anyone who has walked or biked along these roads will understand this is a huge safety improvement for our community,” said Project Manager Chris Munter.

The shoulder improvements are part of the City’s Core 40 program that was developed in 2007 to create a 40-mile integrated shoulder network across the Island to make the roads safer for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The Core 40 Miller Road and Fletcher Bay Road Shoulder Improvement Project, which totals $1.38 million, is paid for through two federal grants in the amount of $1.14 million with the balance to be paid from the City’s general fund.

At the July 10 City Council meeting, the contract was awarded to Titan Earthwork, LLC which was the only bidder.
