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.
