 Road Commission Special Construction Update: Cottonwood Dr. Reconstruction Begins


 The reconstruction and closure of Cottonwood Drive is scheduled to being tomorrow: Wednesday, May 16, 2018

You can find closure and detour maps on our website here:

Here are some important things to remember as we start this project: 

  • During the first phase, Cottonwood Drive will be closed north of Baldwin St. up to the Bauer Rd. intersection. During this phase the Bauer/Cottonwood intersection will remain open.
  • During the first phase, Cottonwood Drive will also be closed south of Baldwin St. to Church St. 
  • Cottonwood south of Baldwin is scheduled to be reopened by June 8, 2018. The section north of Baldwin will remain closed throughout the project. 
  • The road will be closed to through traffic. Residents and businesses on Cottonwood will still be provided access, though you can expect delays due to construction. 
  • The majority of the work will begin on the south end of the project during the first phase, with a large focus being on the Cottonwood/Baldwin intersection. 
  • The Cottonwood/Baldwin intersection will remain open for the entire project, but you can expect delays and possible lane closures. 
  • Thank you to residents and business owners for your patience. We look forward to creating better traffic and safety conditions in this area in the future with this project. 



Remember to drive safe and stay alert in work zones!
