Avon, Nagel Road Openings Delayed

Rain means openings delayed for a few weeks.

Don Damyanic, the project manager for the City of Avon in the Nagel Road interchange project, said the opening of Avon and Nagel Roads is slightly behind schedule. The roads, initially expected to be open by the end of September, will remain closed for several more weeks.

Damyanic blamed the weather for the delay.

“We had hoped to have our paving contractor back on site by now but a job they needed to complete before returning was delayed by the rain we’ve had the last few weeks,” Damyanic said by email. “We hope that two weeks into October we will be back on track to open.”

Despite the short-term delay in the road openings, Damyanic said the overall project is still ahead of where originally intended overall.

But "...a job they needed to complete before returning was delayed by the rain we’ve had the last few weeks,” How far down on that company's priority list is this major Avon construction project? They'll get to us when they finish up elsewhere? Don't much care for the tone of that.

What's funny is when you Google "Nagel Road Interchange", the results are all stories about the project being ahead of schedule. My question is whether or not the interchange will have I-90 access going eastbound and westbound, entering and exiting the freeway? Some have told me no. It's hard to tell while driving.

Bill Bishop - I was wondering the same thing......why not? or is this more work to be done?

A project of this magnitude would not have been built without both east and west access. I can see access ramps construction in both directions.

This project was originally scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2013, it is WAYYY ahead of schedule.

I imagine that the construction company has other contracts that they have to consider as well, and have to move all of the equipment from one job site to the next. It's not like they just pack up the Ranger and drive over to Avon! And it's only a couple weeks, just paving this section of existing road shouldn't take long.

East bound entrance circles around under the bridge similar to Crocker when you are south bound
