County Road supervisor Carla O'Dell has asked people to follow the detour signs and show patience as crews work to finish this fall. Lincoln County commissioners approved all the county road work in May.
Crews are putting the new asphalt on about 35 miles of roads.

The deadline is November 30th. But Odell doesn't know if that deadline will work. All this roadwork is costing about $6-million.
