Phase 2 work will begin when Phase 1 is complete and will be performed during daytime hours with two way traffic maintained in one lane by flaggers from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Phase 3 work is scheduled to begin the week of September 19th and will be performed mostly at night between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m.  Traffic will be restricted to one lane northbound and one lane of southbound while crews work at night.  The road will typically be completely reopened each morning with a few exceptions to make repairs to the existing concrete.

  • Other work will include repairing concrete curbs, sidewalks, and handicap ramps and the elimination of the small section of pavement currently closed by delineators.
