Installations of sidewalks, curb and gutter and repairs to soft spots in the roadway associated with water line problems will be the focus of highway work in Afton in the final weeks of July.
Depatco, Inc. is concluding work on the main street area of U.S. Highway 89 under the Elkhorn Arch with installation of a concrete strip in the center of the road.
Once the concrete work is complete, the road will be milled, taking up two inches of pavement and then reinstalling it with a new layer that will match the concrete work.
The new overlay will extend from the new four-lane on the south end of Afton to the two-lane highway at the north end of the community.
The new paving work and associated milling will start Aug. 18, after the Lincoln County Fair.
