Construction Warning for Cyclists on Ronald Reagan Blvd.

March 19, 2012

The good folks in Williamson County have asked us to share the following information regarding planned construction work on Ronald Regan Boulevard.  Please make note of this planned road work and take extra caution when riding in this area.

“Williamson County’s contractor, Ramming Paving, is scheduled to start the asphalt repair and overlay on the portion of Ronald Reagan Blvd., a popular road for cyclists, from RM 2243 to SH 29.  This work began on Thursday, March 15th on the northbound lanes near RM 2243.  It will take approximately 4 weeks to complete the work (weather permitting) which will consist of making repairs to the pavement, paving a new 2 inch asphalt overlay and re-striping.  The contractor will have various lane closures daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  One lane of traffic in each direction and access to all side streets and driveways will maintained at all times during the work.  Lane closures will not take place if the pavement is wet or rain is eminent.

An electronic message board will be put up warning bicyclists of the work on the roadway.  The shoulders will be closed periodically during the overlay work.  Some bicyclists have been riding around the barricades and getting into the work zone and this creates dangerous situations for drivers, riders and workers.   Please obey the barricades and do not ride around them while this work is being completed.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your cooperation.”
