ABILENE, Texas — Beginning Monday, Sept. 23, Abilene drivers can expect lane closures on Ridgemont Drive as work gets underway in the City’s first street maintenance fund reconstruction project.

The two east-side lanes of Ridgemont will be closed as crews with Bontke Brothers Construction prepare to mill the surface. The two west-side lanes will then convert to two-way traffic.

Drivers are asked to slow down in the area, especially as they turn on to Ridgemont Drive from South Clack Street.

The $993,833 reconstruction is funded through the City of Abilene’s Street Maintenance Fund, with the majority of funds coming from the Development
Corporation of Abilene’s contribution to the funding.

Work on Ridgemont Drive is expected to take approximately three months, or 60 working days to complete, depending on weather conditions. Residents, drivers and Ridgemont area property owners with any problems or concerns with the work while it’s underway can contact City of Abilene Engineering Services at 325-676-6281.
