Micropaving projects coming to Washington County

Micro-surface paving will begin Tuesday on several county roads. Preparation work, including vegetation trimming and striping removal began on Monday. Work hours for both the preparation and paving will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Advisory signs will be posted before the work begins. Roads will remain open, but may be limited to one-way traffic. Travelers can expect up to 15-minute delays; alternate routes, if possible, are recommended.
