Highway 5 Work Continues 28 May 13

The detour for the bridge work on Highway 5 east of Gaylord is expected to be removed this week, and traffic restrictions from Gaylord to Arlington are expected to follow beginning May 31st, weather permitting. The resurfacing operation from First Street in Gaylord to Sheila Drive in Arlington will restrict traffic to one lane with flagging operations and a pilot car. Motorists are advised to drive with caution through the work zone and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices. The reconstruction of sidewalk ramps on Highway 5 in Arlington continues for another few weeks as well. The complete nearly $2.6-million project should be done by early July. A second project on Highway 5 from Arlington to Green Isle is scheduled to begin in July.
