Residents should expect that they will work 7:00 am – 7:00 pm Monday through Saturday. No night work or road closures are planned for this project but sometimes special arrangements help accomplish a task in the most productive and least disruptive manner. Residents will be notified of any night work.
The project is scheduled to start on Monday, September 25th. At the start of the project, one lane of one-way traffic will be maintained in the eastbound direction from Burger King to Liberty Road. Eventually (maybe as early as Thanksgiving) one-way eastbound traffic will be extended through the Liberty Road Intersection to Andre Lane.
