ASHTON – Two road improvements projects are slated to begin in Ashton this week.

Construction will get underway on Wednesday at the intersection of U.S. 20 and SH-47. The project will focus on improving the traffic flow and safety of the area.

“The US-20 / SH-47 intersection project will consist of a stoplight, new curb and sidewalks, storm sewer work, and pavement. Work is scheduled to be completed in October. Traffic patterns will change periodically to allow for construction,” ITD officials said in a news release.

The second project is a pavement overlay starting near North Fremont High School and continuing to Bear Gulch. Crews will resurface the road to add a layer of protection. It’s expeced to last about 15 days.

Lane closures may come as a result of the project, so be prepared for traffic delays.

Drivers are asked to be extra cautious. Follow all traffic signs, flaggers and observe the posted speed limit.
