The highway will remain open throughout the remainder of construction operations, as the Contractor will employ one-lane alternating closures when workers are present on the highway surface.

Please avoid foot traffic within the project limits.

We ask for local residents’ patience and understanding as there may be traffic delays and increased levels of noise and dust during construction.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
