Utility Exploration Begins on Portion of Grant Road

Subsurface utility exploration began today in the traffic lanes of Grant Road from west of Country Club Road to east of Swan Road. The work will continue through Nov. 22. This is part of the design work for the Grant Road Improvement Project.

The exploration process, known in the industry as "potholing," allows designers and contractors to determine the depth of existing underground utilities. Intermittent lane shifts and single lane closures will occur during the process, and the speed limit will be reduced to 25 mph in work zone areas.

Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are asked to use caution to help ensure worker safety.
