185th Street repairs delayed
Repaving 185th Street between Highway 1 and Pleasant Plain Road did not begin as planned Thursday, and according to the Jefferson County Secondary Roads Department, will not begin for at least another week.
The secondary roads department expects the repaving and repair of the road to commence no earlier than Aug. 18. The reason for the delay is that not all of the subcontractors are ready to begin working on the project.
The project was originally going to be completed by the last week in August, but the completion date will now be pushed back 1.5 weeks.
Though the road may be open to through traffic temporarily during certain phases of construction, motorists are advised to seek alternative routes around that portion of 185th Street.
