Meet Your New Emergency On-Ramp

The new emergency ramp onto I-5 at the top of N. Mountain Av. is almost finished. An overlay of asphalt grindings will complete the surface temporarily; final asphalt paving will be applied when ODOT gets approval from the Federal Highway Administration. According to Public Works Director Scott Fleury, “ODOT is going to try to finalize the grinding placement next week and do the final cleanup, so it ‘should’ be complete then.” 

Thanks to everyone involved in making this happen in record time! Now let’s just hope we never have to use it.
