G28 Asphalt Milling and Overlay

Notification of upcoming construction on G28 that will impact traffic for several weeks. 

  • Construction is tentatively scheduled to start on May 15th and will likely be a 6–8-week project weather pending. 
  • The project includes the entire G28 corridor from Hwy 14 to the Pella Corp. Limit east of T15. 
  • The project involves asphalt milling, base widening across Roberts Creek Dam (to shift the road centerline north), 3 lifts of asphalt overlay, granular shouldering, edgeline rumbles, center/edgeline paint, and guardrail removal/replacement. 
  • What to expect: 
    • Each phase will include one lane road with flaggers and pilot cars, progressing back and forth from west to east, and visa-versa.
    • Construction will progress in 1–2-mile increments, so not all segments will be impacted simultaneously.
    • Expect delays of 5-10 minutes at times, especially if you live in a subdivision, we will be staging each subdivision entrance ½ at a time with flagger to pave approaches.
    • Dutchman’s Landing East residents should expect one of the entrances, Holland Dr. or Amsterdam Dr., to be closed in order to facilitate faster paving of the other entrance.
    • Expect rough milled surfaces at the beginning of construction for 4-8 days.
    • During most phases of milling and overlay expect uneven lanes and bumps.
      • After milling the edge of the road will be higher than the through lanes. 
      • During lifts of overlay the lanes will be uneven at the centerline of the road
      • Prior to/during shouldering there may be a drop-off at the edge of the pavement
    • No pavement markings will be present once milling starts through final phases.
    • Expect heavy truck traffic in the area even if construction progress is not immediately impacting your segment.
  • Project Funding:
    • $3,738,935 including:
      • $2M from Miller-Meeks Community Project Funding
      • ~$300,000 in HSIP (safety funds for guardrail)
      • remaining $1.43M from Farm-to-Market.

Again, please allow extra time, use caution and patience.  This road was last overlayed in 2002 and we understand construction can be inconvenient, however, it is infrequent and will result in a sustainable ride quality and structural improvements.

Thank you, Tyler Christian, Marion County Engineer
