Final paving is about to begin on the section of North Dixie Avenue around Towne Mall.

The U.S. 31W improvement project, which has disrupted motorists and been changing traffic patterns for months, has lane closures planned overnight. The Transportation Cabinet spokesman said lane closures will continue between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night this week as final preparations take place.

The top layer of asphalt surface will be applied along Dixie north of Ring Road as soon as ground loop sensors are installed and final adjustments are made ahead of the top layer application.

Completion of final surfacing is expected by the end of this month, a news release from the state said.
