Highway 50 resurfacing to be delayed until August

O’FALLON – The resurfacing of Highway 50, between Hartman Lane and Old Collinsville Road, originally scheduled to begin on July 10, has been delayed and is now scheduled to begin on August 6, 2017. It is anticipated that work will be completed in 6 to 8 weeks, weather permitting. All construction operations will take place during the night between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to lessen the impact on traffic.

“We were notified by Christ Brothers Asphalt, the contractor for this project, that they would have to delay the start date for the resurfacing project due to last week’s Illinois Department of Transportation shut down,” said Mayor Herb Roach. “We apologize for this delay.”

The road will remain open to through-traffic and access to all properties will be maintained throughout construction, though occasional delays may be encountered.

The work will consist of milling and overlaying the existing pavement and will be completed by Christ Brothers Asphalt.

Current updates for this, and other construction projects can be found on the City’s website at www.ofallon.org under Quick Links, Construction Updates.
