Weather permitting, road work will begin on 180th Street NE, East of Solon in Cedar Township, from Utah Avenue NE to the Cedar County Line, on Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2021. This is part of the Johnson County Maintenance Rehabilitation Project M21-4.
During daylight construction hours, one-lane traffic will be maintained using flaggers and pilot cars. The road will be open to two-way traffic each night. The project is expected to be completed in 10 working days.
The Contractor, LL Pelling Company of North Liberty, Iowa, will be placing a single course Otta Seal over the existing rock surface. Otta Seal is similar to a traditional chip seal, which limits fugitive dust and helps keep water out of the road subgrade, extending its service life.
Please use caution, allow extra travel time, put the phone down, and most importantly - slow down when driving through work zones. The Johnson County Secondary Roads Department appreciates your help and patience as the project is completed.
