BUCKEYE LAKE – Our wet summer continues to affect construction projects.
Buckeye Lake Village’s scheduled closure of Hunts Landing Road on Monday, August 27, has been pushed back to Tuesday, August 28 and Wednesday, August 29. Work will still begin on Monday with traffic controlled for the layout, signage and ditch work. The road will be closed to all traffic beginning Tuesday for a full-depth reclamation project. The existing roadway will be ground up, mixed with cement for stabilization and relaid as the base for a new asphalt surface. This new base must cure before it is paved. The curing time combined with the Labor Day holiday weekend means the roadway will be closed to commercial vehicles until Wednesday, September 5. Personal vehicles will be able to drive on the new base beginning Thursday, August 30.
Maple Bay area residents will be able to use a temporary connection to the Cranberry Bay subdivision during the two-day closure. Cranberry Bay residents should expect additional traffic in their neighborhood. Buckeye Lake Village Water Supervisor Toby Miller cautions that additional schedule adjustments may be needed. He said any additional changes will be publicized as quickly as possible
