Milling and paving is scheduled for State Route 48 near the City of Loveland’s downtown area. Weather permitting, work will be performed through the nights of Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 24-26.
The impacted portion of SR 48 begins at the Five Points intersection (near Broadway Street) and goes north toward the O’Bannon Creek Bridge (between Harrison Avenue and Lyon Avenue). Drivers may have noticed crews recently replacing curbs along this stretch of roadway.
The next repair step is milling, the process of grinding off the top layer of asphalt to a specific depth. Crews are scheduled to mill Oct. 21 and Oct. 22 from approximately 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Paving is scheduled for Oct. 24-26. This will also be completed overnight from approximately 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Milling and paving has been scheduled for overnight shifts to minimize traffic delays. A temporary flashing message board has been placed near the downtown area to alert drivers about the upcoming work.
Additionally, crews will be milling W. Loveland Avenue from Loveland-Madeira Road to Anniversary Park on Oct. 21 and paving that stretch Oct. 24 before they move to SR 48.
