These restrictions will be changed to a round-the-clock lane closure beginning on Thursday, March 25, 2021. Two-way traffic will be maintained through this lane closure using temporary traffic signals. The lane closure is needed to complete a box culvert replacement and the work related to the lane closure is expected to be completed by mid-May 2021. After the box culvert work is complete, the contractor will again be using intermittent lane restrictions to construct a new asphalt surface. The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of June 2021.
