Maugans project timeline extended

August 21, 2007|By ANDREW SCHOTZ

A Maugans Avenue improvement project is expected to be finished in August 2008, according to Washington County Deputy Chief Engineer Robert J. Slocum.

In a story about the project that ran Sunday, The Herald-Mail reported that it was estimated the work would be completed in the middle of May.

That estimate was correct when Slocum talked about the project several weeks ago, but there have been delays since then.

The Herald-Mail left a message with Slocum on Friday for an update, but he was not available.

Slocum noted in an e-mail on Monday that the schedule could change again should there be additional delays.

Work is under way to widen Maugans Avenue from two lanes to five lanes between U.S. 11 and Interstate 81. The project includes adding turning lanes, as well as traffic signals at the interstate ramps.
