Dyer Hill traffic delays

(Filed October 18, 2013) Smithland- The contractor on the US 60 Dyer Hill Curve Project in LIVINGSTON County will be stopping traffic in the work zone from time to time during the day starting today.

While much of the work to this point has been off the highway away from traffic flow, the contractor is now hauling dirt from one side of the road to the other.  This will require flaggers to stop traffic to allow trucks to cross the existing highway in this work zone during daylight hours on a Monday through Saturday schedule.   Delays are expected to be minimal, generally less than a couple of minutes.

Motorists should be alert for stopped traffic as they approach this work zone at US 60 mile point 18.5 in Livingston County.  This phase of work is expected to take about 3 weeks to complete.

Jim Smith Contracting of Grand Rivers is the prime contractor on this $2,199,999 highway improvement project.
