Hwy 36: Now With Only 30 Minute Delays
Residents and travelers out Hwy 36 have been struggling with the extended closure times due to a Federal Highways realignment project between mile marker 36 to just past mile marker 40. Basically, the road is closed Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with an hour from 12 to 1 p.m. that allowed through traffic.
Now that has changed. According to Kody King, Public Information Officer for Mercer Fraser,
Project Details: Federal Highways Administration and Mercer Fraser Company will be continuing a realignment project between Humboldt Post Mile 36.05 and Humboldt Post Mile 40.44 that was started last year. These improvements will realign the highway and straighten out the sharp curves on the existing highway now.
Time: Full Road Closures will end October 31st, 2018. Flagging with 30 min delays will begin Thursday November 1st and extend into next spring as weather permits.
Closure Times: The Highway will experience 30-minute delays Monday thru Thursday 7am to 7pm and Fridays 7am -3pm. The highway will not be open for an hour between 12pm and 1pm, instead we will be constantly flagging the project with 30 min delays.
