Work on Johnsburg roads to start next week

JOHNSBURG – Work on Fairview Avenue and Johnsburg Road project will start next week, according to news releases.

The grinding down of Fairview Avenue between Chapel Hill Road and about 150 feet north of Johnsburg Road had been expected to begin this week has been pushed back to Tuesday due to rain in the forecast. The paving will follow on Thursday or Friday, depending on weather.

Electronic message boards were placed around the Johnsburg Road project Wednesday ahead of working starting on the project next week.

The contractor, Pirtano Construction Company, will begin widening the westbound lane to accommodate an eastbound detour.
