Mormon Lake Road Project (2019)
The north entrance of Mormon Lake Road will remain closed for several weeks so crews can finish the Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project. During this period, motorists will need to access Mormon Lake through the south entrance. Read on...
August 19, 2019:
All (old pavement) pulverization work for the project has been completed, and crews are very close to substantial completion on first-lift (layer) paving operations all the way up to the north entrance. Second and final lift paving operations are getting underway with the plan to complete them within the next couple of weeks. In the interim, a second paving company continues to work on driveway turnouts.
In other project work, the three parking lots at Mormon Lake Lodge have been paved (but final striping has yet to be completed). The fire station’s parking lot also has been paved. Drainage-wise, the concrete bases for two box culvert extensions have been poured and wingwalls for these culverts should be completed within the next week or so. Punchlist work on completed project sections also is continuing from south to north along Mormon Lake Road.
Please note that the north entrance of Mormon Lake Road is still expected to be closed until mid-September, or until the contractor is confident that traffic will not impede the progress of remaining work. As summer continues to wind down and days get shorter, this remains a priority. As always, this schedule is subject to change due to weather orother unforeseen factors.
The Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project includes the mill, overlay and widening of the entire 9.8 miles of roadway along the western shore of Mormon Lake. This $9.5 million project is funded primarily by a Federal Land Access Program (FLAP) grant from CFL, which was awarded to the County in summer 2017. The County’s match of approximately $5 million for this project is funded by Proposition 403, the County’s Road Maintenance Sales Tax.
