Work is scheduled to begin next month for a new southbound bypass lane on Sidney Road SW at the intersection of Shannon Drive SW.

Work is scheduled to begin next month for a new southbound bypass lane on Sidney Road SW at the intersection of Shannon Drive SW.

The project widens the travel lanes from the current 11 feet to 12 feet; constructs a 12-foot southbound bypass lane; and paves and widens the existing gravel shoulders from 6 feet to 8 feet.

It will improve safety for both vehicles and pedestrians, and is expected to begin mid-April and be completed by mid-June, according to Dick Dadisman, project manager.

Dadisman said RV Associates, Inc. was awarded the bid for the project at $330,045.

He said stormwater collection also will be improved with the addition of catch basins and storm pipes. A bio-retention facility, commonly referred to as a “rain garden,” will be constructed along the east side of Sidney Road, improving runoff and water quality while promoting stormwater infiltration.

Dadisman noted that during the project, one lane of traffic will be maintained in the work zone. Flaggers will assist with expected periodic one-lane closures; however every effort will be made to minimize traffic delays.

He added that immediate passage for emergency vehicles will be provided at all times and crews will maintain access to driveways.
