Motorists are advised to use caution on Ronald Reagan Parkway starting the evening of Sunday, June 25, as crews begin applying new asphalt on the popular four-lane, divided roadway.
The resurfacing project, which covers the entire 7-mile road from Pleasant Hill Boulevard to Presidential Circle, will be performed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. to minimize inconvenience to residents. Weather permitting, the project should be finished by the end of August.
On June 25, crews will start repaving one lane on the westbound side at Presidential Circle and work their way to Pleasant Hill Road. Then they move to the eastbound side and work back toward Presidential Circle. Then, they’ll repeat the cycle on the remaining lane in each direction.
During the resurfacing, lanes near the worksite will be reduced from two to one. The moving work location will be well-lit, but people should note signs and flaggers advising motorists to slow down and use caution. The resurfacing will not affect the two lanes in the opposite direction across the median.
State and federal funds are paying 80 percent of the $3.2 million project with the County covering the balance with revenue from 2009 SPLOST.
