    Pavement Preservation Beginning Friday, August 20, The Department of Transportation, along with its contractor, Borderland Construction, will be placing barriers along the west side of Houghton Road from Brekke Road to Dawn Road. 

    Project Activity

    Starting Friday, August 20, between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m., the contractor will place barriers along the west shoulder of Houghton Road between Brekke Road and Dawn Road in order to continue work on the water line. Traffic will remain in the current configuration while the contractor builds the new south bound lanes, west of the roadway, along with the drainage improvements.

    Project Scope

    Improvements will include widening of South Houghton Road from a 2-lane roadway to a divided 4-lane roadway, a separated multi-use path that will connect to the loop, drainage and intersection improvements. The project is expected to be completed late winter 2022/2023. For more information on the project, visit our website at

    The speed limit has been reduced to 35 MPH within the construction zone. Please approach the area with caution and obey all traffic control devices. Traffic control changes and speed reductions will occur as work progresses.
