Diamond grinding consists of removing a thin layer of pavement at the surface of the roadway using diamond saw blades. The practice is used to level surfaces and produces saw-cut grooves that improve smoothness, road noise and drainage.
Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through work zones. Delays are expected, especially during peak travel times. All work is weather dependent and schedules are subject to change.
