Bay Road Update

The Bay Road drainage and safety improvements are moving steadily towards completion.  The county’s contractor will be on the road over the next couple of weeks to complete the grass shoulder widening, asphalt milling, and final road resurfacing work.  Expect intermittent single lane closures during this time.

This project is improving safety along the road by widening the shoulder and by creating much flatter side slopes along the roadside ditch.  In addition, approximately 1,200 linear feet of guard rail will be installed at the edge of the new shoulder as shown on the attached map.

We anticipate that all paving work will wrap-up by the end of March, and the guard rail will be completely installed approximately one to two weeks after paving is complete, weather permitting.

As we finish the remainder of the project, we ask drivers in the area to slow down, pay attention to traffic control devices, and look out for crews working along the roadway. Stay tuned to our website at and our social media feeds for updates!
