Starting later this month, motorists who use Summit Parkway and Summit Ridge Drive in Northeast Richland are asked to use extra caution because of scheduled upgrades to the two roadways. Crews contracted by the County’s Department of Public Works will finish the roadwork by the end of November.
The affected areas are:
- Summit Parkway, from the intersection of Hardscrabble Road to Summit Ridge Drive
- Summit Ridge Drive, from Summit Parkway to the entrance of Lake Carolina
Work will begin Wednesday, Sept. 27 on Summit Parkway and extend to Summit Ridge Drive. Improvements to both roads will include curb and gutter repair, base repair and asphalt resurfacing.
While work is ongoing, drivers should expect temporary delays and plan extra time for traveling these roads, using an alternate route if possible. Work will occur during daytime hours.
Lane closures will occur on Summit Parkway, with at least one lane in each direction remaining open for travel. Lane closures for some parts of Summit Ridge Drive will reduce traffic to one lane.
