Work on City Projects to Continue Following End of Strike

Shoulder Improvement Project

Work on two City projects that were postponed last month due to a strike about a labor dispute is expected to begin soon after a deal was reached between construction workers of International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 302 and a contractors’ group.

Granite Construction, which was awarded the Beachcrest paving project, is expected to resume work on Tuesday, September 11. During paving, drivers should expect delays in the area that could be one hour or more.

It is anticipated that work will begin on the Miller & Fletcher Bay Road shoulder improvement project on Thursday, September 13. The City's contractor, Titan Earthwork, will have crews doing survey work along the road on Thursday and Friday, so drivers should use caution in the area. Drivers will see more activity in the area beginning on Monday, September 17 and should expect delays.

The shoulder improvements along Miller and Fletcher Bay Roads are part of the City’s Core 40 program to create a 40-mile integrated shoulder network across the Island to make the roads safer for all users.
