BRADLEY COUNTY, SR-60 (Dalton Pike) road widening from near Gilliland Road to U.S. 64 (SR-311):  SR-60 (Dalton Pike) is undergoing major reconstruction.  The existing two-lane highway is being widened to a five-lane highway with sidewalk, curb and gutter on either side.  All driveways and side streets along the 2.7 mile project are being lowered or raised to match the proposed SR-60 grade.  Delays are to be expected at the intersection of Dalton Pike and McGrady Drive/Treasury Drive as the contractor works to upgrade the intersection.  Hawk Street (east) is closed to through traffic.  The temporary road closure is necessary to excavate and build a box culvert across the proposed new alignment.  The contractor will have to do lane shifts in order to pave the road.  Also the contractor will be installing drainage pipe, box culvert, sidewalk, curb and gutter in the coming weeks.  Detour signs and message boards will be provided to assist motorists.  Estimated project completion date is Late Fall 2012.
