Officials hope to get the Grand Avenue project completed by the end of the year.
The state Transportation Department had planned to finish the work by October, but the utilities portion of the project has taken longer than expected, said David Trujillo, the state Department of Transportation’s local assistant district engineer.
Heavy rains in August also delayed the work, he said.
“We’ve been lucky with some good weather. Hopefully, it’ll hold,” Trujillo said. “Utilities have been what has been killing us on our schedule.”
