Local Information

Businesses remain open

Temporary lane, sidewalk and driveway closures may happen from time to time, but access to businesses will be maintained at all times.

Expected traffic delays

Regional traffic will be kept open to through traffic during construction. However, throughout construction there will be temporary lane restrictions which will result in delays. Drivers can avoid delays by using alternative routes.
