Notice of Upcoming Roadwork

Safety/circulation signage will be placed in strategic locations both within and outside the project area to inform the public of the changes to circulation patterns.

Some traffic delays during construction should be anticipated, so please consider using alternate routes and allow additional time to accommodate delays in your travel plans.
