The U.S. Highway 51 project through Woodruff and Arbor Vitae is now complete with all lanes of Hwy. 51 from 3rd Ave. to Tuckaway Dr. open to traffic. Some short-term lane closures should be expected as needed in the coming couple weeks to allow crews to finish cleanup and minor repair work.
Road work began on the Hwy. 47 and Hwy. 51 project in 2018 when Hwy. 51 was reconstructed from 3rd Ave. to Lemma Creek Rd. and Hwy. 47 reconstructed from Oak St. to Hemlock St.
Work resumed on the project in April of this year when Hwy. 51 was reconstructed from Lemma Creek Rd. to Tuckaway Dr.
The project was scheduled to be completed in November 2019.
