Daily lane closures throughout the month of May allowed for sidewalk and irrigation sleeve installation as well as for the addition of permanent poles and traffic signal wiring throughout the Hwy. 26 project’s limits. That work took place from John McCain Road to Brown Trail. The multiyear project will make Hwy. 26 a six-lane roadway spanning 23 miles. This work was ongoing as of the week of June 7.
